How Often Should I Rotate My Tires?
Do you have a hard time keeping up with your vehicle’s routine maintenance? If so, you’re not alone! To help our clients stay on top of these important services, the technicians at Bill Kay Ford are here to bring you up to speed on tire rotations. In addition to letting you know how often this job should be performed, we’ll also fill you in on a few benefits of working with our top-notch .
Although there’s still some debate as to how often you should have your tires rotated, we recommend that this job be performed about every 6,000 to 8,000 miles, or approximately every other oil change. Generally, this should keep most vehicles balanced and stable without putting you in harm’s way or creating too much of an inconvenience. However, you should be aware that various factors will impact this timeline, such as your specific model’s age, condition, and drivetrain. If you’re ever unsure if you’re due for a rotation, you can always reach out to our staff via the form or by giving us a call.
Benefits of Regular Care
So, what sort of benefits can you expect from a set of routinely-rotated tires? First and foremost, by giving the leading pair a break every now and then, they’ll degrade at a slower rate, which in the long run means you won’t have to purchase replacements as often, saving you a potentially significant sum. Moreover, once you’re indeed ready for new tires, you’ll be able to purchase four at once, as opposed to one or two, thus netting you enviable per-unit savings. Furthermore, since tires that don’t get rotated degrade at different rates, they often cause reduced fuel economy and traction. Therefore, if you stay current with this job, you’ll also remain efficient and safe.
We’re Here to Help!
Once you’re ready for your next rotation, our service team will be here to help. After lifting your ride, we’ll carefully inspect the condition of each tire to determine the ideal configuration. We’ll also be sure to ask if you’re due for routine tasks like a brake check, alignment, or oil change, so we can handle those while your vehicle is with us. To prove that we’ll go the extra mile on your behalf, our technicians will be on the lookout for any issues developing beneath the surface that might hinder your performance in the future. That way, we can fix the problem before it grows into something bigger!
