WHY DO I NEED TO ROTATE MY TYRES?
Nearly every vehicle and tyre manufacturer suggest you intermittently rotate your tyres so they wear consistently and last for a longer period of time.
Tyre rotations are one of the most effective ways to prolong the life of your tyres and get the maximum value from your tyre investment.
Whether you drive a sedan, 4×4 or SUV, your tyre ‘health’ will benefit from being rotated periodically because the weight and workload they carry are unevenly distributed among the four wheels, making the tyres wear unevenly over time. Rotations help to rectify this by distributing the tyre wear more evenly.
The frequency of tyre rotations are dependant on the vehicle itself and the manufacturer’s recommendations (these guidelines are listed in the owners’ manual). As a rule of thumb, get your tyres rotated every time you get an oil change or every 10,000 KM. For example, if you drive 20,000 KM per year you should be rotating your tyres twice a year.
