Why are Tire Rotations so Important?

Here at Jefferson Auto in Washington, PA, we offer a number of services to help your car run smoothly. Tire rotations are especially important for many reasons. Many automobile manufacturers recommend having your tires rotated every 5,000 miles, and many drivers choose to have tire rotations at the same time as oil changes. Here are a few reasons why you should keep up with routine tire rotations.

Front-wheel drive vehicles need to have tire rotations because the front tires take on more friction and torque than the rear tires, so having them rotated regularly will ensure they wear evenly. With all-wheel-drive vehicles, tire rotations are important because they reduce strain on the powertrain and other drivetrain components.

Routine tire rotations can help make your vehicle safer by enhancing braking, stability, handling, and cornering. When your tires are being rotated, they are inspected for damage and will be properly balanced if necessary for an even grip and better traction.
