Tire Rotation Glendale Heights
The only part of your vehicle, hopefully, that has contact with the ground are your four tires, and if you think back to the number of miles you’ve covered over the past few weeks, months, and years, it’s no wonder they eventually go bald! And while Rogaine can’t help your tires regrow their tread, a tire rotation in Glendale Heights can help prolong the lifespan of your set and extend your safety.
The Glendale Nissan Service team is a group of individuals who are certified technicians, trained to determine the quality and efficiency of the tires currently on your vehicle. A tire rotation is a simple part of routine maintenance, like an oil change or wheel alignment, that should be performed on a regular basis to help save money further down the road.
Why is a tire rotation important?
As you have noticed from years of driving or riding in a vehicle, the roadways aren’t exactly smooth and forgiving. They’re bumpy and full of rocks, construction, and poor driving conditions that are slippery.
Over time, this will cause your tires to wear down unevenly. Also, because the engine is located in the front of your vehicle, the front tires especially take a pounding because of the extra pull and power. (Primarily in front-wheel drive vehicles.)
How often should I rotate my tires?
Although it will depend on how much driving you do and what the condition of your tires are like in the first place, it is recommended on average to have your tires rotated every 5,000 to 8,000 miles.
An easy way to remember this is to have it taken care of when you come in for an oil change. Because different parts of your vehicle carry and distribute weight differently, a tire rotation will help to even out the work load across the vehicle's body.
How long does a tire rotation take?
A tire rotation isn’t a lengthy service, but if you plan on having the wheels aligned and the oil changed too, don’t expect Nascar pit times; then again, this certainly isn’t an all day job either.
During a tire rotation, each tire must be removed from your vehicle and moved to a different position depending on the amount of wear it has endured. The air pressure of each tire will also be checked and adjusted.
