Rotating Tires

Why should you rotate your tires? In the end, they seem to spin when the car moves. All the jokes aside, there is one excellent reason that your tires rotate on a regular schedule. Rotating the tires, you provide an even wear. This means that you will get the most out of your investment.

Assuming that your tires have at least an average quality, and you never rotate them, your front tires will wear out somewhere between 16,000 and 32,000 kilometers. Compare this to the rear tires, the length of which will be from 80 000 to 130 000 km, and you will see that without turning the tire you will lay out a lot of extra money to replace tires that you do not need.

Since the front tires rely on a turn, the outer edge of the tire will be much faster than any other part. Both front tires must have approximately the same amount of wear. One tire, showing much greater wear than the other, may indicate a serious problem. In this case, check the vehicle as soon as possible by a qualified technician.

You should have your tires spin every 9,500-12,000 kilometers. Because the tires still have to come off, it’s also a good time to schedule a brake check. It saves money in the long run and can ultimately save your life.

You may have heard that when turning the tire, you do not need to turn. This is because when switching sides the tire should turn upside down and it will move in the opposite direction.

This is no longer a problem. In fact, many manufacturers now recommend turning the tires up, that is, E. The front left tire moves to the rear right position, and the front right tire moves to the left trailing edge. Depending on the wear model, your dealer or tire specialist can recommend either crisscrossing or simply turning from front to back. In any case, check what the manufacturer recommends in the ideal situation.

Rotating tires on a regular schedule, all four tires should wear out at about the same time. This means that you will get the maximum benefit from your tires and the maximum amount of your work.

Rotation means that you change when the car is fitted with separate tires. Suppose you have a front-wheel-drive car with all four tires of the same size. Each tire will have a different load and will face different situations. Front tires will carry more than 60 percent of the weight of the car. They are also responsible for the transfer of engine power to the road and all the steering. Finally, they account for about 80% of inhibition. A typical schedule would be to rotate the tires every 5000 miles.

Even if the car is fully leveled, you will still have uneven tire wear due to “scratches” on bends. This will be more pronounced on the front tires, but will also occur in the rear seats and will not be evenly distributed on all tires. Rotating the tires gives us a longer service life of tires, distributing this wear on all tires in turn.

Most cars are much heavier in the front than the rear, so the front tires work under a lot of stress, both by weight and as a result of the braking load. Rotation distributes this load across all tires.

Finally, I believe that the most important reason for the rotation of the tire is that it gives you the opportunity to look at the brakes and suspension. If we were just waiting for tires to wear out, it could be 50,000 miles between times when we looked at our brakes. This can lead to some costly and dangerous problems.
