What is Tire Rotation?

What does rotating tires mean? At 495 Mazda we hear this question almost everyday! If you want to keep your vehicle on Boston, MA safely, you need to have your tires rotated regularly. Tire rotation is when you move the tires from one location to another on your vehicle. Keep reading for more information on why rotating your tires is so important to the life of your tires and your safety.

What Does Tire Rotation Do?

Moving each tire from one wheel to another extends the life of your tires by making them wear more evenly. Rotating can help you net better fuel economy, provide better traction on slippery roads, and make for a quieter ride. If a storm pops up in Nashua, NH, your car will handle better if the tires have been regularly rotated. You’ll still need to replace your tires eventually, but having your tires rotated at the 495 Mazda service center can help extend their safe and useful life.

How Often Should I Rotate My Tires?

Most manufacturers recommend rotating your tires every six months or every 5,000-7,000 miles, depending on your driving habits in Wakefield, MA. Whether your car is a Front Wheel Drive or Rear Wheel Drive will make a difference on how you rotate:

  • For FWD, move the rear tires to the front and flip them. The left rear tire should go on the right front wheel. When you move the front tires to the back, keep them on the same side.
  • For RWD, move the front tires to the back and flip them. The left front should go on the right rear wheel. When you move the back tires to the front, keep them on the same side.
  • If you use your vehicle on rough roads near Wakefield, MA, you should consider rotating your tires more often.

What Happens if I Don’t Rotate My Tires?

Did you know that your oil change interval and tire rotation interval coincide? There’s really no excuse to not rotate your tires, since you can ask our technicians to do it during an oil change to prevent:

  • Flat tires and blowouts
  • Rapid deterioration of brake pads
  • Poor traction and skidding on the roads
