Why Rotate Tires?

Row of tires
If you’re like most Dayton drivers, you’ve heard that rotating your tires is important. But maybe you’re not sure what the purpose of tire rotation is. There are lots of maintenance tasks for Tipp City drivers to keep track of — oil changes, brake inspections, and more. Tire rotation is an oft-neglected but very important member of this family! So, what does rotating your tires do, and how often to rotate tires? The service center answers these questions and more below!

Why Rotate Tires?: Tire Rotation Benefits

Tire rotation isn’t just spinning them around; As you drive through Dayton, your tires wear down, but not at an even pace. Depending on your roads, driving habits, and drivetrain, some tires are going to see a lot more action than others. Tire rotation is here to fix this problem. So, what does rotating your tires do? It:

  • Improves traction and helps with skidding on tricky Troy roads.
  • Helps prevent flat tires, blowouts, and other road-hazard related problems.
  • Prevents deterioration of the brake pads.

As you can see, knowing how often to rotate tires can help a lot with all of life’s journeys!

What Does Rotating Your Tires Do on AWD Cars?

Why rotate tires on AWD vehicles? Reading above, some Sidney drivers may have assumed that their AWD Honda SUV might work fine without any tire rotation. This isn’t necessarily the case! Many experts hold that rear wheels still wear down faster on an All-Wheel Drive system, as these sometimes send power selectively. Here’s how drivetrain affects other vehicles:

  • FWD and RWD: As you may expect, the front wheels on a FWD vehicle wear out the fastest. On RWD vehicles the reverse principle applies, but the rate of wear-down tends to be slower.

How Often to Rotate Tires

Besides asking, “Why rotate tires?”, many wonder when they should. Experts tend to recommend that you get a tire rotation every 5,000-8,000 miles, or every six months. Of course, many factors affect tire wear, and your owner’s manual is always the best guideline for how often to rotate tires.
