Tires are one of the most important parts of your vehicle to keep maintained. The life of your tires is dependent on the care you take, the type of vehicle, the terrain and the frequency of driving. Wear of your tires is inevitable but with proper maintenance you can keep your vehicle running smoothly and safely.
Rotating and alignment helps your vehicle maintain even wearing of your tires. Colony One Auto’s tire and balancing services will enable your tires to function at a better performance level and for a longer period of time. We recommend rotating tires every 3,000-6,000 miles and balancing them every 12,000-15,000 miles, depending on the type of vehicle and the intensity of driving conditions.
Replacing the tires on your car or truck can represent a rather large investment. Protecting your investment is the best thing to do. Rotating you tires will dramatically increase their lifespan. Tires develop a specific wear pattern relative to their location on your vehicle. The forces acting on the front tires are far more severe than on the rear. Front wheel drive vehicles are even harder on the front tires. Changing the location of the tires from front to rear allows all the tires to wear more evenly. The pressure in tires is also important so a little diligence with a tire pressure gauge once a month will add to the life of your tires.
Routine Tire Maintenance
An easy way to remember to rotate your tires is to request that they be rotated every other oil change (for front wheel drive vehicles that endure intense driving conditions, every oil change is preferable).
When tires are new, they are balanced so the wheel and the tire roll smoothly down the road. As the tires wear, there is less rubber than when they were originally balanced. Have the tires rebalanced every other tire rotation to maintain smooth operation of the tire and wheel.
