Your tires are one of the most important features on your vehicle. Keeping them well maintained is essential for safety and fuel efficiency. Rotation and inflation services protect your tires and keep your vehicle running smoothly.
Tire Rotation: You should rotate your tires to ensure that they wear evenly. Maintaining uniform tread wear may prolong the performance of your tires and reduce wheel vibration. Front and rear tires wear differently so rotating them around your vehicle will allow them to wear more evenly and last longer. A standard recommendation is to rotate tires every 6000 miles to avoid dangerous situations caused by poor traction or tire failure.
Tire Inflation: Many of us drive around each day with underinflated tires. Studies show that fewer than 60% of us ever check our tire pressure. This causes uneven wear on your tread and reduces fuel efficiency. An underinflated tire can negatively affect steering, traction, alignment, and braking. Under inflation makes a tire run hot, putting you at greater risk for a blowout or tire failure.
Nitrogen: One benefit of filling your tires with nitrogen is that they will stay properly inflated longer because nitrogen is slower to leak out of tires. The longer your tires are properly inflated, the better performance you will receive from your vehicle. Try nitrogen the next time you need air and see if you notice improved handling and longer inflation time.
