    What is Tire Rotation?

    What is tire rotation? You may have heard that term mentioned when it comes to vehicle service, but not exactly know what it means or what the benefits are. Well, tire rotation is important to maintain traction, prevent blowouts, and even improve fuel economy. Learn more about this important step in tire maintenance with Valley Honda.

What Does Rotating Tires Mean?

Quite simply, tire rotation is when tires are moved from one position on a vehicle to another. For the majority of vehicles, the front tires will move to the rear and the rear tires will move to the front. Depending on the drive train and wear, they may also change sides, so what was the rear left tire will end up as the front right tire.

The majority of vehicles carry more weight at the front, so their front tires will typically wear out faster. To prevent the uneven wear that this can cause, tire rotation is recommended. This service also is important for tire longevity, whether you’re sticking to short commutes between Chicago and Naperville or making a cross-country drive from Oswego.

What Does Tire Rotation Do?

  • Maintains Traction: Tires lose tread depth as they wear down. This loss of tread depth leads to traction being reduced, which can interfere with your ability to control the vehicle in certain situations. Tire rotations prevent uneven tire wear and help ensure that all tires have the same amount of tread.
  • Prevents Blowouts: Tires become more likely to fail as they get worn down. This can help prevent a blow out or flat tire that leaves you stranded on the side of the road in Wheaton.
  • Improves Performance: Tires working together that have uneven wear often produce vibration, which you’ll eventually feel through the steering wheel.
  • Maximizes Efficiency: Worn tires create drag, which places strain on the engine and increases your fuel consumption.
