Tire rotation is an important part of routine maintenance you don’t want to miss. Regular tire rotation provides better traction on Lumberton roads, and extends the life of your tires. Want to learn how to do it yourself, and skip the cost at your local service department? Follow this simple tire rotation guide to keep your vehicle rolling as long as it can.
Individual driving habits and environments result in uneven tire wear. For example, the outside edges on your front tires will likely wear faster while rear wheels wear more evenly, due to the impact front wheels experience while turning. As a result, your tires get used up at different rates, and you’ll have to replace them more often.
Front and rear-wheel drive vehicles usually need a tire rotation every 5,000-7,500 miles. All-wheel drive vehicles require tire rotation every 3,000-5,000 miles since all tires are actively engaged, which results in faster wear. As with any vehicle service, we always recommend checking your owners manual for more specific recommendations.
