GV Tires Vancouver – How often should you rotate your tires?

Rotating your front and rear tires can help extend the life of your tires. Regardless of whether your car is a front of all wheel drive vehicle, your front and rear tires are going to wear differently, as do the sidewalls on your left and right tires. Uneven wear can also occur due to turning in a certain direction more frequently. Things like braking and steering can also place more wear and tear on the front tires. Rotating your tires will help to minimize this uneven wear and improve your car’s performance. How often you rotate your tires will depend mainly on the type of vehicle you drive and the vehicle’s usage.

Many manufacturers will have their own recommendations as to how often the vehicle’s tires should be rotated. It is usually recommended that tires be rotated every 6,000 to 8,000 miles, about twice a year. A good rule of thumb is to have your tires rotated each time you get an oil change. It’s also a good idea to check the alignment of the vehicle’s wheels at this time, as misalignment can also exacerbate wear on tire’s treads and sidewalls. If you have a spare tire, this can be included in the rotation as well.

At GV Tires, we offer tire rotation and alignment services in addition to carrying a wide selection of both new and used tires. We can also check the pressure of your tires to ensure that they are properly inflated.

Having your tires rotated and wheels aligned at regular intervals is a great step towards extending the life of your tires. However, no matter how good of care you take of your tires, eventually they will need to be replaced. If your tires are more than five years old, or if there are visible holes and punctures on your tires, the treads are badly worn, or if the sidewalls are damaged, there is a good chance you will need new tires. At GV Tires, our friendly and knowledgeable staff can guide you towards the best possible choice for your vehicle and budget. We carry carefully inspected pre-owned tires for most makes and models of vehicles. We will take the time to explain our products’ features and help you make the best decision for your car. We can also install your new tires for you.
