What is Tire Rotation?

It’s a key part of routine maintenance, but not all Conway drivers are familiar with the process. So, what is tire rotation? Rotating your tires on a regular basis ensures that tire treads wear down evenly. As a result, your tires will last longer and grip better on the road in Murrells Inlet.

What does tire rotation do for your tires? Performing a tire rotation means that you remove your car’s tires and “rotate” them to different positions. Tires wear differently depending on their position, and you can prevent too much wear in one area by rotating. Read the guide below for tire rotation tips and tricks from the experts at the Beach Automotive Group service center!

What Does Rotating Tires Mean?

Most Florence drivers choose to schedule professional tire rotation service, but you can save money by performing a rotation yourself if you have the proper tools and know-how.

The tire rotation pattern varies depending on your vehicle’s drivetrain. For example, the rotation pattern for front-wheel drive vehicles is: right front to right rear; left front to left rear; right rear to left front; left rear to right front. Here’s what you need to know to take care of the job yourself:

  • Most vehicles are heavier in front, which causes front tires to wear out faster than rear tires.
  • FDW drivetrains send power exclusively to the front axle, so the front tires experience more friction. As a result, the tires on FWD vehicles wear out faster than AWD tires.
  • Tire rotation pattern and rotation frequency will vary depending on your vehicle. Contact your local Wilmington-area Ford, Lincoln, Volvo service center for recommended rotation intervals, and rotation patterns for FWD, RWD, AWD, or 4WD drivetrains.

What Does Tire Rotation Do?

What does tire rotation do for your tire treads, and what happens if you don’t rotate your tires? All tires lose tread gradually as you drive. If you don’t rotate your tires, the treads will wear down in one place rather than evenly across the whole tire. As a result, less of the tire can contact the road surface. Both for your safety and your finances, regular rotation has lots of benefits:

  • Better traction
  • Longer tire life
  • Smoother ride
  • Optimal fuel efficiency
  • Reduced likelihood of blowouts
