No matter what kind of vehicle you drive, there is a lot riding on your tires. Just like every other part of your vehicle, those tires require regular care and maintenance to perform at their best.
Tire rotation is a form of maintenance in which the tires are repositioned on the vehicle, resulting in more even wear and longer tread life. Preventing premature tread wear is an important part of automotive safety, and it is one of the most important reasons for regular tire rotation.
Maintenance Tips and Suggestions
It is important to care for your tires the right way. Here are some tips to help you extend the life of your tires and stay safer on the road.
Check your owner’s manual for the recommended tire rotation interval, as well as the recommended rotation pattern. In most cases, you should have your tires rotated every 6,000 miles.
The rotation pattern will vary depending on the make and model you drive. Some vehicles use different size tires on the front and back wheels, while others use the same size for all four wheels. If you need help with the tire rotation schedule or pattern, just stop by Next Auto Care® and meet with our experienced tire experts. We will help you design a tire rotation schedule that works for you and your vehicle.
The tires on your vehicle contain a series of numbers, and each one has an important story to tell. The numbers on your tires are used to describe its width, wheel diameter and aspect ratio.
For instance, a tire marked as 185/75R14 simply means that the tire has a width of 185mm, that it fits on a 14″ rim and that it has an aspect ratio of 75%. That 75% represents the width of the tire divided by its height.
The R on the tire simply means that it is a radial tire. Just about every tire made these days is a radial, so that R designation has largely lost its importance.
