Tire Rotation, Repair and Replacement for Domestic, Fleet, Pickup Trucks & Hybrid vehicles
Why and when to rotate your vehicles tires?
- Front and rear tires wear differently; front wear down faster
- Extend the life of your tires
- Look at your vehicle’s manual for when to rotate tires, usually it’s between 3,000 to 7,000 miles
It is recommended that vehicle owners buy a complete set of four tires all at once. Because of this, a tire rotation will ensure that you’ll get the longest performance life out of each of your four tires. Front tires assist the vehicle with turning and the overall steering; this is why wear happens much faster in the front. A regular tire rotation and tire balance will guarantee you will not have to replace your front tires long before your back tires.
