Why Rotate Tires

Mercedes-Benz Tire

 

When you drive on Springfield roads, your tires wear unevenly. This is because of their position on your vehicle and how your drivetrain sends power to your tires, so why rotate tires? This spreads the wear across your tires more evenly and ensures that your tires have a longer lifespan. Learn how often to rotate tires and how to properly care for your tires from Mercedes-Benz of Eugene below. Contact us with any questions, or check out our other service tips to learn more. 

What Does Tire Rotation Do?

Tire rotation offers a variety of benefits to Roseburg drivers who want to care for their vehicles. So what does tire rotation do, and what benefits does it offer? When you rotate your tires, it gives you these benefits: 

  • Maintains Traction: Worn tires have reduced traction, which reduces your control on Corvallis roads during rain or in difficult conditions. Tire rotation reduces wear. 
  • Prevents Blowouts: Tires that are worn are also more likely to fail. By rotating your tires you reduce your risk of blowouts. 
  • Improves Performance: If your tires are uneven, your vehicle may vibrate as you drive. Tires with more even wear offer better performance. 
  • Maximizes Efficiency: Your vehicle will be more efficient with evenly worn tires. This is because worn tires create drag, strain the engine, and increase your fuel consumption.

How Often to Rotate Tires

When your tires are rotated, your tires are moved from one position on your vehicle to another. If you drive a FWD vehicle, your drivetrain primarily sends power to your front tires, which wears those tires more quickly. On a RWD vehicle, the inverse happens. AWD vehicles send power to all of your tires, and so they all wear more quickly. Check below for how often to rotate tires on your vehicle: 

  • On most FWD or RWD vehicles, it’s recommended that you rotate your tires every 5,000-7,500 miles. 
  • On most AWD vehicles, it’s recommended that you rotate your tires every 3,000-5,000 miles. 
  • Always check your owner’s manual for specifics for your make and model
