Getting your car’s tires rotated at periodic intervals may be beneficial in several ways. When rotation is done at the recommended time, it can preserve the handling and balance of your car’s tires, as well as ensure even wear. Each set of tires on your vehicle performs a very distinct function. Wear patterns will vary according to whether your car is a rear or front wheel drive and whether it’s a sports car or family sedan. It’s usually better for you to get all the tires changed on your car at the same time. If your car’s tires are rotated at regular intervals, they should wear out together. Opinions vary on when tire rotation should be performed, but generally experts say it should be done every three to five thousand miles on high-performance cars and less often on family cars. For more information on rotating your tires, contact your local tire shop or auto mechanic.
