Tire Rotation Service In Raleigh, NC



Your tires are an essential part of your vehicle. There are many more factors to keeping your tires maintained than just making sure they have accurate pressure. One of those services is tire rotation. Rotating tires is extremely important; it keeps your tires working properly and helps you avoid a tire replacement. Thankfully, our auto repair service center in Raleigh is here to perform tire rotation quickly and efficiently for you. Read on to learn more about what tire rotation service entails, how often you need to do it, and other things to expect.

What Is Tire Rotation?

Tire rotation means changing the position of each of the tires on your vehicle. Usually, your tires get rotated from the front to the rear and sometimes from left to right (and vice versa) as well. Tire rotation usually happens when you come in for a routine oil change. It also allows our Volvo-certified mechanics near Wake Forest to inspect your tires for damage, check the pressure, see if they need rebalancing, and check tread depth. Your owner's manual will tell you how often to rotate tires and what pattern you should use as well. When you're ready for a tire rotation or any other maintenance intervals, you can easily schedule service in Raleigh, NC, with us.

Why Is Tire Rotation Important?

The primary purpose of tire rotation is to even out the wear between your tires so that they last longer and, ultimately, save you money. Here are some other reasons that show why it is important to get your tires rotated:

  • Tire rotation helps give you balanced handling and good traction on the road
  • Regular tire rotation allows you to maintain any warranties you have on your tires
  • Tire rotation keeps the tread depth on your tires uniform
  • Getting tire rotation can help you avoid things like blowouts, poor traction, hydroplaning, and heat buildup.

You should get a tire rotation with every oil change. But another way to see if your tires need rotating is to check the wear on your tires. Doing this is as simple as using a penny. You place a penny upside down in the tread groove (Lincoln's head first). If you can see the top of Abe Lincoln's head, your tread is too worn down! If a good portion of his head is covered, your tread is good.

If you ever have any questions about your tread wear or tire rotation, feel free to give our service center a call. Our friendly technicians are always here to help.
