Tire Rotation & Wheel Alignment

Tire safety is often overlooked but is one of the most important components of your vehicle that need to be cared for regularly. Replacing your tires can come with a hefty price tag, which is why it’s important to detect any issues right away.

Taking the time to check your tires now can save you time and money in the future. Most importantly, proper tire care can prevent a serious accident down the line.

If you notice any problems with your tread, tire alignment, or other tire issues, we strongly recommend you come in to see a professional as soon as possible. Without proper tire care, you risk the dangers of blowing out a tire on the road.

Tire Rotation

 

The amount of wear and tear on certain areas of your tires vary depending on the amount of friction. Front tires tend to see more erosion because they handle much of the cornering forces during turns, which is even greater for front wheel drive vehicles.

Getting your tires rotated regularly allows for all tires to wear more evenly over time and increases their lifespan. Tire rotation is performed to even out tread wear and give the front tires a little break on the back end.

Tire rotation patterns vary for each vehicle. For most vehicles, the tire rotates front to back. Some manufacturers recommend a cross rotation pattern that includes the spare tire. Some high-performance vehicles have different size tires on the front and rear, and may even have a unidirectional tire that can only be on the left or right side of the vehicle.

An experienced technician can ensure that the right tire rotation and maintenance is performed on your vehicle.

Wheel Balancing

 

When wheels are out of balance, there are small weight differences between tires that can cause annoying vibrations at speed. When this happens, there are heavy spots on the tire and wheel which causes your car to wobble as you drive. Overtime, unbalanced tires experience premature wear.

The first signs of improper wheel balance

If a front wheel is out of balance, you will feel the vibration through the steering wheel. When it is a rear tire, you will feel the vibration through your seat. It’s important to bring your vehicle in right away to determined if it’s a balance issue or something else that can become an even bigger problem later on.
