A new set of tires is one of the more expensive purchases that Pittsburgh, Wexford, and Cranberry Township drivers will make for their cars. After they do, they’ll likely be looking for ways to make those tires last as long as possible.
Rotating your tires regularly is one of the easiest ways to lengthen the lifespan of them. You may have heard that before. Now, Baierl Tires is here to answer the simple question: What is a tire rotation?
Why You Should Get Your Tires Rotated
Tire rotations are a simple maintenance job in which the mechanic switches tires from the front to the rear of the car (and vice versa). To keep these rotations as effective as possible, you’ll want to have them performed each time your car gets an oil change (or every 7,500 miles or so).
Rotating your tires ensure that the tread wears evenly across the entire set. The front and rear axles of your car take on different weights, especially up front where there is usually more. For this reason, tires at one position may wear down far quicker than others.
The outside edges of your front tires will be the most prone to wear as the miles build up. Keep them rotated, and they shouldn’t degrade on you too quickly!
We’ll Take Care of All Your Tire Maintenance
As a dedicated tire shop, we’re happy to take care of all your required tire maintenance, which means simple things such as rotations and rebalancings. However, if you were to drive over a nail in the road and needed some sort of patch, we’d gladly take care of that, too.
Our technicians are well-versed in all types of routine vehicle maintenance, but tires are really their specialty. As soon as your car’s tires need any maintenance, get in touch with them online or over the phone. They’ll have your car back on the road in no time at all.
Is It Time for New Tires?
Staying up to date on routine tire maintenance can add many miles to their lifespan. Nevertheless, the tread is bound to wear down at some point. Namely, when your tires’ tread depth falls below 1/16th of an inch, they’re balding and ready to go.
We have a high-quality selection of tires, direct from the factory. This includes popular name brands such as Michelin, Hankook, and Firestone Bridgestone. Reach out to our team, and we’ll make sure that you get the correct size and style for your vehicle.
