Tire rotations are an essential part of routine maintenance. By rotating your tires, you ensure they last longer (which is good because tires can be expensive) and promote the vehicle’s safe performance. When you drive, your tires do not wear evenly on the front and back, due to how each wheel turns. By regularly rotating them, you will ensure even wear on all four tires.
For specifics on how often to rotate your tires, check the owner’s manual of your vehicle’s specific make and model. Our general guidance, however, is to rotate them roughly every 5,000 miles, or every time you change the oil. If you get an oil change here at Coast to Coast Imports, we will throw in a tire rotation with it — and we’ll also do a thorough inspection of your vehicle to make sure everything else is running properly.
Want to rotate the vehicle’s tires at home? First, you will need to invest in a few tools: a torque wrench, an impact wrench, a hydraulic floor jack, and jack stands. The principle behind rotating your tires is simple, but the task can be challenging if you are new to working on a car for the first time. So, it’s a good idea to have a friend or family member on hand who has rotated tires before when you rotate the tires on your vehicle.
