You know keeping up with tire rotation maintenance is a must, but do you know why? The experts at Christian Brothers Automotive Omaha field questions from confused drivers every day. To clear up some of the confusion, here are answers to the four most common tire rotation questions.
1. Why do I need to have my tires rotated regularly?
Your tires are designed to last a long time, but harsh driving habits and/or driving on rough terrain will put extra stress on your tires. Other factors, such as neglectful tire maintenance, can cause faster or uneven tire wear. Protect your investment by rotating and checking your tires regularly when you come in for any other automotive service.
2. How long should my tires last?
Your tires’ total mileage will depend on the quality of your tires, your driving habits and maintenance schedule. Your tires could last up to 60,000 miles if you take good care of them, but this mileage will decrease if you don’t perform regular tire rotations. Maintaining the appropriate air pressure is also important and will help extend your tire’s lifetime as well as your gas mileage.
3. When and how often should I have my car’s tires rotated?
The ASE-certified technicians at our Omaha car shop recommend tire rotation service every 5,000- 7,500 miles. All-wheel drive vehicles (AWD) require the most regular maintenance and tire rotations since these type of vehicles must have matching tires to prevent any damage to the entire driving system.
