Schedule Service

Between oil changes and fluid flushes, some drivers get overwhelmed by all the routine maintenance services that a hard-working vehicle needs. But what about your wheels? Is tire rotation necessary? The answer is yes! Let's take a look at how to rotate tires, and why it's so crucial to your car's performance.

Why Rotate Your Tires

Whether you have front- or all-wheel drive, each tire faces its own set of stressors. For example, front tires on a front-wheel drive vehicle accumulate lots of black brake dust. Swapping those tires to the back can result in better performance and increased longevity.

How Often to Rotate Tires

When in doubt, check your car manual for advice on how to rotate your tires. Many technicians recommend rotating your tires during your oil change, so you can save a little extra time. It's worth checking in with your technician for more specific advice. Cars with directional tires and different size tires need slightly different care than FWD or AWD models.
