How Often to Rotate Your Tires

October 28th, 2016 by

The importance of the tire rotation service can’t be understated. It’s at the base of your tire care and an integral part of keeping your vehicle running smoothly.

The tires are your vehicle’s point of contact with the road and affect driving dynamics, fuel economy, braking ability, and more. So keep your vehicle on the road and in control with regular tire rotations from Braman Honda of Palm Beach.

Why Get a Tire Rotation?

The rotation service plays an important role in the overall health of your tires. The preventative maintenance service ensures that your tires wear evenly so they last as long as possible. But what exactly is a tire rotation service and how does it help your tires?

Imagine that you’re running in a three-legged race with a friend. The leg tied to your friend does a bit less work than your outside leg. That’s basically what happens to the inside part of the tire while it’s on the rim. The tire rotation service switches the side of the tire that’s getting the most use so the tire wears evenly. So it’s like if you and your friend switched sides.

Another benefit of the tire rotation service is that it gives the team at your local Honda service center near Palm Beach, Greenacres, and Boca Raton a chance to inspect your tires for bulges, tears, adhesions, and impalements. We’ll look at the tires while we switch them around and make sure that they still have plenty of miles on them.

How Often to Get a Tire Rotation?

Because the tire rotation service is preventative maintenance, you should get it done with other similar services, like oil changes and vehicle inspections. That means you’ll get your tires rotated roughly once or twice per year.

If you’re not sure what the exact interval should be for your vehicle, check your owner’s manual. You’ll find a wealth of information there, but a quick look at the table of contents for Maintenance Schedule should make it a little easier. You’ll also find the perfect oil change interval for your vehicle as well as recommendations for specific parts.
