What is a Tire Rotation?

Rotating tires

 

Are you wondering, “What is a tire rotation?” Tire rotation prevents tires from wearing down too fast, which extends the sustainability of your tires. This process helps with traction, blowouts, and improves fuel economy on Valparaiso roads. Learn more about tire rotation from the Bosak Chevrolet service center below!

What is Tire Rotation & Balance? 

Follow the guide below to learn more about, “What is a tire rotation?”:

What is the Proper Tire Rotation Pattern?

  • Tires are moved from one position on a vehicle to another. 
  • The front tires will move to the rear and the rear tires will move to the front. 
  • They may also change sides, so what was the rear left tire will end up as the front right tire, which is known as the tire rotation pattern.
  • Your vehicle’s drivetrain will also affect the tire rotation pattern, to ensure that no tire wears down too fast 

What is Getting your Tires Rotated Doing For Your Tire Balance?

  • Most new vehicles carry more weight at the front, so front tires will typically wear out faster, but the type of drivetrain your vehicle has will also affect the rate at which each tire wears down. 
  • In front-wheel drive vehicles, power is sent to the front axle and wheels to produce forward motion. As a result, the front tires will wear down faster than they would in rear-wheel drive, all-wheel drive, or four-wheel drive models.

What Is Getting Your Tire Rotated Doing For Your Performance?

  • Traction: When tires wear down, they lose tread depth. A loss of tread depth means loss of traction is which interferes with your ability to control the vehicle in certain situations. Preventing uneven tire wear helps ensure that all tires have the same amount of tread.
  • Blowouts: Tires become more likely to fail as they get worn down. If you’ve ever had a tire blow out as you drive around Lake Station, you are aware of the dangers associated with it.
  • Performance: Tires working together that have uneven wear often produce vibration, which you’ll eventually feel through the steering wheel.
  • Efficiency: Worn tires create the drag, strain the engine, and increase your fuel consumption.
