While your tires rotate as you’re driving each day, this is not what we mean when we refer to tire rotation. Having tire rotation services performed as preventative maintenance can save you from having to buy new tires earlier than needed. Our certified technicians will remove each tire and rim assembly, known as the wheel, from its axle and move it to one of the other three locations on your car, truck, or SUV. They may be switched from one side to another, front to back, or vice versa. The importance of this service is that it helps prolong the life of your tires, by switching the spots that experience wear. In other words, the unworn edges of your tires will be switched to a location in which they’ll be used more to save the worn edges from being used.
Tire wear can be caused by a larger problem such as alignment issues, but also from normal wear and tear. The outside edges of your tires are likely worn more quickly than the rest of their surfaces. Our certified technicians can help with this issue by moving your tires and wheels to another location on your Toyota. This helps prevent further wear in the same areas, so you don’t have to buy new tires before it’s necessary.
The biggest risk in delaying tire rotation services is having to buy new tires prematurely. If the tread depth in the area contacting the ground is too minimal by the time you bring in your Toyota, we won’t be able to switch them. To keep from having to purchase new tires, our certified technicians recommend having your tires rotated often to continually change the location of tire wear on your treads. Be sure to check your owner’s manual to see how often you should have this performed for your particular model.
Having your tires rotated can have many knock-on effects for your Toyota. With a minor investment, you can experience the following rewards:
