Tire rotations and balancing is often an overlooked pair of services. While they may seem miniscule, these services are relatively inexpensive and are actually extremely beneficial to the health of your tires. When you get your tires regularly rotated and balanced, you protect your tires from uneven tire wear and ensure that your tires last longer overall.
What is a tire rotation? A tire rotation is when your tires are moved from one position to another. For instance, a front tire is moved to the back and vise versa. This helps to ensure that the wear on all of the tires stays even over a period of time.
What is tire balancing? Tire balancing adjusts your tire mounting to ensure that all tires are equally balanced so that one side of your tires doesn't have more pressure than the other. It is another way to make sure that your tires wear evenly.
What most people don't realize is that these two simple and quick services can actually increase the life of your tires by years. It is easy for tires to be out of balance and for more pressure to be on the front tires. When you have these two services completely regularly, you avoid having to get one or two tires sooner than the remaining tires. It also reduces the overall frequency of getting new tires, saving you lots of money in the process.
