Why You Shouldn’t Miss a Tire Rotation

Some people think that rotating the tires on your vehicle is not worth the hassle. It raises a good question – why should you rotate your tires? Is it worth the hassle?

The fact is, if you are interested in saving money, tire rotations are definitely worth the hassle. Here’s why: tires wear out unevenly (front tires usually wear down faster than the rear tires). Rotating your tires means you are changing the positions of the tires, helping to keep all four tires wearing down at an even pace, which can give you thousands of extra miles on your set of tires. This means you will spend less money on purchasing new tires. It also leads to a smoother and safer ride. Most manufacturers recommend rotating your tires every 6 – 8 thousand miles.

The easiest way is to bring your car over to Bargain Tire for a tire rotation service that is quick and affordable. However,  if you’d rather do it yourself, it’s a fairly simple process. Make sure you have all of the necessary equipment (e.g. wrench, jack, and jack stands) and feel confident with the process of changing a tire. Also be sure to use the proper rotation pattern (shown below), which depends on whether your tires are all the same size and non-directional.tire rotation pocatello idIf you have more questions about tire rotations, or if it is time to purchase new tires, come see us at Bargain Tire and we’ll get you the best deal in town!
