Your vehicle’s tires play a hugely important role when it comes to keeping you safe and comfortable on the road. After all, no other part of your vehicle should come into contact with the road. Tires also are not cheap, so it makes sense that you would want to get as much use out of them as possible. To help your tires last longer, be sure to bring them in for regular tire rotation service. You can find out more about tire rotation on this page; then, see why drivers from Walpole, New Hampshire, and Town of Rockingham, Vermont choose Faith's Automotive for tire rotations and other services.
As your tires roll down the road, their tread slowly wears down. But did you know that this does not happen at an even rate? The front tires will generally wear down faster than the rear tires, even on all-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive models. This is due to several reasons. The front axle is the steering axle, so the wheels have to deal with extra strain from that. In addition, the front end of the vehicle is often heavier than the rear.
When you come to Faith's Automotive for a tire rotation, our technicians will remove all four of your vehicle's wheels. They will switch the front wheels to the rear position and the rear wheels to the front position. Depending on your tires' tread pattern and the type of drivetrain your vehicle has, they may also switch the left and right wheels to provide a more even wear pattern.
At Faith's Automotive, we recommend that you have your Toyota tires or Ford tires rotated at least once a year or every 10,000 miles. Since that is also the recommended service interval between oil changes, these two services are often paired.
