Replacing your tires before its necessary can be an expensive proposition, but that painful experience can be avoided with regular tire rotation and inspection. Tire rotation is even more important on front-wheel drive vehicles, sport utility vehicles and light trucks since these vehicles tend to wear tires unevenly, front to back. Your owner's manual will give specific recommendations about how often to rotate tires, but, as a rule, rotate between 3,000 and 5,000 miles. Consider rotating tires at the same time the oil is changed.
Rotating the tires provides an excellent opportunity to carefully inspect them. Uneven wear is a tip-off that the tires have been operated at the wrong inflation pressure. Certain tire wear patterns indicate that the suspension needs alignment or the tires are out of balance. Finally, a regular inspection will let you know how much longer you can expect your tires to last or if they need to be replaced because of unusual lumps or bumps.
Your vehicle's tires are the only thing standing between the car and the road. If they're not kept in good condition, catastrophic failure can lead to you being stuck on the side of the road, or even cause a serious accident while driving. Part of our commitment at Good Guys Auto Care Center is to ensure that our customers enjoy the best possible tire care, and that includes our tire rotation service. Whether you drive a big truck, a minivan or a passenger car, proper tire rotation is essential. By rotating your tires at the correct mileage interval, you keep the wear even between the front and rear, maximizing your tire life (that saves you a good bit of money in the long run). At our Fountain Valley, Mission Viejo and Rancho Santa Margarita locations we also inspect your brakes and other systems during tire rotations. We're happy to offer our tire rotation service in conjunction with other services as well - we can change your oil and rotate your tires at the same time.
