  • What Do Tire Rotations Involve?
  • Why Are Tire Rotations Recommended?
  • When Do Your Tires Need Rotating?

What Do Tire Rotations Involve?

During a rotation, technicians will simply change the position of each tire. How this happens will depend on your make and model, but we’ll usually:

  • Move the front tires to the rear.
  • Move the rear tires to the front.
  • Move the right side tires to the left.
  • Move the left side tires to the right.

Why Are Tire Rotations Recommended?

Tire rotations are performed to compensate for the uneven wear that occurs when some tires are placed under more pressure than others. This should extend the life of each tire and prevent:

  • Flats
  • Blowouts
  • Loss of Control
  • Lack of Proper Braking

When Do Your Tires Need Rotating?

Tire rotations are generally recommended every 3,000 to 5,000 miles, so they’ll usually be performed whenever your vehicle gets an oil change. This should happen as part of your recommended service plan, but you may benefit from a tire rotation sooner than expected if you notice your vehicle:

  • Shaking over smooth and even surfaces.
  • Suddenly losing control.
  • Taking longer than before to slow down.
  • Losing air pressure faster in some tires than others.

You can also perform a quick visual inspection after your next trip around Los Angeles. Simply look at multiple points on each tire – if any appears more worn than the others, schedule servicing as soon as possible.
