Lithia Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram of Wasilla Ensures Your Tires Longevity with Tire Rotations
Do you feel like your tires are sometimes forgotten about when it comes to caring for your car? The unsung heroes of your car are responsible not just for allowing it to glide across the asphalt effortlessly, but also for gripping the road when needed in order to ensure precise handling. Because they perform their function so well, it can sometimes be easy to forget that they require routine maintenance just like any other component of your vehicle.
What does routine tire maintenance include? The most common kind of maintenance for your tires is called a tire rotation. The common assumption is that our tires are constantly rotating while traveling down the road, so why pay to have someone else spin them? Why not just let that Sunday trip to Grandma's do all the work? Simply put, that's not quite what a tire rotation is.
The answer is that tires tend to wear unevenly. A tire rotation is when your tires are removed and then placed back in a different spot on your car so that they wear down more evenly as you drive. The outside edges age quicker because your tires lean when taking a turn. If you then leave tires in place, parts of your tires will run down faster than the rest. The end result? You are left having to replace tires thousands of miles sooner than need be. That's why bringing your Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep or Ram in for a tire rotation makes all the difference.
