Balance and Rotate

TIRE ROTATION  If you like responsive handling, and if you like saving money, then this tip's for you. We usually recommend rotating your tires every 6,000 miles, but always have them rotated whenever the first sign of irregular wear occurs.

Even wear on all four tires will extend the useful life of your tires, as well as rolling more smoothly and improving the handling of your vehicle.

Most radial passenger and truck tires are rotated by sending the front tires to the rear on the same side, while the rear tires are crossed and sent to the front. However, asymmetric or uni-directional tread designs cannot be rotated this way. Be sure to check with a professional if you have any questions.

TIRE BALANCING During rotation, it's a good idea to have the tech check the inflation pressure and balance. A wheel is out of balance when one area of the tire is heavier than the rest. Wobbling, bad handling, and premature tire wear can result.
