How often you rotate your tires will depend upon the manufacturers suggestion and the type of driving you do.
A general rule of thumb is to rotate your tires based upon the type of oil your vehicle uses. If you are not sure, check the owner’s manual. For vehicles that use conventional oil, tires should be rotated every other oil change, or 5,00-6,000 miles. For vehicle that use synthetic oil, then it will be every oil change, which is also about every 6,000 miles.
At Bob’s Auto Service, when our mechanics rotate your tires they will also consider the best rotation pattern for your vehicle, the type of tires on your vehicle, as well as the condition of the wear on the tires.
Regular tire rotation helps to maintain an even amount of tread wear on all 4 tires. It also prolongs the life of your tires, leads to improved gas mileage and a more comfortable ride. Regular rotation of your tires can also prolong the life of your vehicle’s suspension components by reducing vibrations.
An added bonus, when our mechanics remove your vehicle’s wheels, they will look over the undercarriage components and catch any problems in the very early stages; which can save you money down the road. We love to save our customers money when we can!
Fall is the perfect time to get those tires checked over and/or rotated for that soon-before-we-know-it cold weather. Call us today: 608-782-1375.
