Why rotate your tires?
The Car Salon Tire and Auto Center in Calgary,Alberta suggest to get the most life out of your tires, we are experts and recommend rotating your tires regularly. Front and rear tires wear differently; for example, the front tires carry more than 60% of your car’s weight. As a result, front tires wear down faster than the rear ones. Turning wears the front tires at different rates as left turns are usually taken faster than right ones. This puts more load on the right front tire, resulting in the right tire wearing faster than the left.
Tire rotations equalize these natural wear patterns by changing the positions of your tires. By rotating your tires regularly, you’ll ensure yourself a smoother and safer ride. More importantly, you’llsave money in the long run by extending the life of your tires.
How often should you rotate your tires?
