How Often Should I Rotate My Tires?
Rather than keeping the ins and outs of automotive care shrouded in mystery, the Service Department at Pohanka Hyundai of Fredericksburg is here to arm you with some valuable knowledge. Specifically, we’d like to cover how often you should rotate your tires, as many customers still admit that they don’t have this job performed nearly as often as they should. Our are standing by to answer your questions, so don’t hesitate to reach out with any inquiries.
Although this timeframe varies, a good rule thumb for tire rotations is to have one completed about every six months or 5,000 miles, whichever comes first. This just so happens to coincide with the standard timeline for oil changes, making it easier to remember when it should be performed. However, you should keep a few variables in mind that might affect this recommendation, including your model’s age, drivetrain, and condition, as well as your personal driving habits. Along with ensuring that your ride remains balanced, routine tire rotations allow us to track your tires’ health, so we can let you know when you’ll be due for a new set.
Importance of Tire Rotations
You might be wondering what makes tire rotations so vital in the first place, so we’re here to bring you up to speed. Although you might not realize it, your tires are essentially in a constant state of degradation—especially the leading pair, as they have to contend with the additional stress of turning and braking. Over time, this can result in them wearing down much more quickly than the two in back, which will hurt your fuel economy and stability in the long run. Ultimately, you might have to replace the front tires before the other two, preventing you from taking advantage of the per-unit savings of buying four at once.
