Tire rotation is a subject surrounded by myth. Luckily, our ACE-certified technicians at Christian Brothers Automotive Sandy Springs are here to set the record straight by busting some of the most common tire rotation myths.
There’s Only One Right Way to Rotate Your Tires
Not true by any means. You can rotate a vehicle’s tires in several ways. That being said, you should use a single rotation pattern for specific vehicles, including ones with same size directional or differently sized, non-directional tires and wheel.
For those of you with vehicle’s that are rear or four-wheel drive, our experts can do the tire rotation in an X pattern. If you have a front-wheel drive vehicle, we’ll switch the back tires to the front and move the front tires right and left.
Have Your Tires Rotated After Every Oil Change
While it is true that you can’t over-rotate your tires, it’s not necessary to have them rotated with every oil change. It’s generally recommended to rotate your tires every 6,000 to 8,000 miles. So, if you’re changing your oil every 3,000 miles, you only need to rotate your tires with every other oil change.
Don’t Worry About Your Spare Tire
You may be wondering about the spare tire you have. If you want to have it part of the rotation, just ask our technicians, and we’ll include it. We can exchange your most worn out tire for the spare. The process can be a significant boost to the life expectancy of your tires.
