A simple tire rotation is one of the easiest forms of routine maintenance that car owners can do. It only takes a few minutes at your local service center and can help prolong the lifespan of your tires, helping you get your money’s worth. However, many drivers in the East Providence, Cranston, and Pawtucket areas don’t get regular tire rotations for their vehicles.
At Stateline Nissan, we want all drivers to be well-informed and safe. Explore the information and resources on this page to learn more about tire rotations and how to schedule service today.
Why Get a Tire Rotation?
As you drive, the tires on your vehicle gradually wear down, reducing the amount of tread they have. Tread is what gives the tire its road gripping ability and therefore gives the vehicle traction. However, for a number of reasons, the tires don’t all wear down at an even rate. Specifically, the front two tires tend to wear down at a faster rate than the rear tires because of the weight of the front of the vehicle.
A regular tire rotation helps promote even wear among all four tires. Regular tire rotations can offer many benefits, including:
- Prolonged lifespan of all four tires
- Optimal traction control
- Better fuel efficiency
Signs You Might Need a Tire Rotation
One telltale sign that your vehicle is ready for a tire rotation is if it’s been more than six months since your last one. You can also try comparing the tread on the front and rear tires, but that might take a trained eye to detect. It’s also important to note that just because all four tires have the same tread depth doesn’t mean it’s a safe tread depth. A professional tire rotation will include a thorough inspection to ensure your tires are safe.
Other signs that a tire rotation might be needed include low air pressure in the tires or vibrations felt throughout the vehicle.
