Keeping Your Chevy Tires in Shape: Rotations
Everybody loves a smooth-driving car. In order to help yours stay sharp and precise in the handling department, you’ll need to stay up to date on routine maintenance—particularly the jobs that pertain to your tires.
First things first, you’ll want to make sure you’re scheduling regular tire rotations for your Chevrolet car, truck, or SUV. A rotation is when a tire is moved from one position on your car to another opposite position. This job helps tread to wear evenly at all positions on your car, ensuring they can maintain traction even on slippery roads.
It’s recommended that you have the tires on your Chevy rotated every 7,500 miles or with each oil change.
Have Your Wheels Aligned
Even if you’re rotating your tires regularly and keeping them filled to the recommended pressure level, they can still wear down quickly if they’re out of alignment.
A wheel alignment is an adjustment of the part of the car that connects the vehicle to the actual wheels, otherwise known as the suspension. This may only need to be performed every couple of years but may arise more frequently if you drive over a lot of uneven, bumpy terrain.
Since wheel alignment intervals can vary, you’ll want to keep a lookout for the following signs that alignment is due.
- Your vehicle pulls to one side when you’re coming to a stop.
- The steering wheel is always crooked (even if you’re driving straight).
- There are excessive vibrations in the steering wheel.
- Your tires are squealing, even if the brake system is healthy.
Are Your Tires Due for Replacement?
Even with phenomenal care and attention to routine service, the tread on your tires will eventually wear to such a degree that they need to be replaced. Once the tread depth has worn to 1/16th of an inch, it’s time for a new set.
