The knowledgeable technicians at Christian Brothers Automotive Frisco West are regularly asked, “Why is a tire rotation needed?” We want you to get the most out of your tires. That’s why today, we’re going to give you a clear answer! Here are answers to the four most frequently asked questions about tire rotation service.
1. Why do my tires need to be rotated?
Neglecting tire rotations, or any tire maintenance service, can cause your tires to wear faster. Tires are a big investment and are designed to last a long time. However, regularly driving over rough terrain or severe driving habits can put a strain on your vehicle. Tire rotations prevent uneven wear and ultimately prolong the life of your investment.
2. How often should my tires be rotated?
Our ASE-certified technicians suggest a tire rotation at least every 6 months, or 6,000 miles. You can’t over-rotate your tires! Vehicles with all-wheel drive (AWD) especially need regular tire rotations. The AWD systems must have matching tires to avoid damage to the drive system.
3. Does your auto repair shop in West Frisco rotate tires?
Yes we do! Our professional technicians have the proper tools and equipment to take care of all aspects of tire maintenance. This includes:
Tire air pressure checks
When your vehicle is brought into our Frisco auto repair shop for any reason, we’ll offer a free courtesy inspection. This inspection will help us determine the correct intervals for maintenance services on your vehicle.
4. How long should my tires last?
While the exact mileage varies depending on driving habits and maintenance, tires are built to last. If your tires are taken care of, they can last as long as the warranty, or 3 years. Without regular tire rotations, their lifespan significantly decreases. Keeping your tires properly rotated and maintaining proper tire air pressure protects the tires, prolongs their life and even increases your gas mileage.
At Christian Brothers Automotive Frisco West, a standard tire rotation is $24.99. Our professionals recommend tire rotation service at the correct intervals and will only rotate if the tires are safe and sound. We’ll let you know whether your tires need to be rotated or if it’s time for a replacement.
