What is Tire Rotation?

If you’ve had your vehicle repaired at a service center in Rogers, you’ve likely heard about tire rotations. But what is tire rotation? What does tire rotation do? Don’t tires always rotate? Let our team at our Elk River auto repair shop answer your tire rotation questions!

What Does Rotating Tires Mean?

Tire rotation is performed to prevent uneven wear, and that’s extremely important for tire longevity. Whether you’re only making short commutes between Rogers and Anoka or making a cross-country drive from Coon Rapids, tire rotations are important. While it may sound like your wheels are simply moving as-intended, a tire rotation is when tires are removed and reinstalled under another wheel well.

Because most engines are located in the front, cars usually carry more weight at the front. Front tires also do the steering, and many cars today are front-wheel drive. That means front tires typically wear out faster than rear tires. In most cases, the front tires will move to the rear and the rear tires will move to the front. In many cases, they may also flip sides so what was the rear left tire end up being the front right tire.

What Does Tire Rotation Do?

  • Maintains Traction: Tires lose tread depth as you drive along the road. As tread depth is reduced, you lose traction. Preventing uneven tire wear helps ensure that all tires have the same amount of tread, giving you predictable handling.
  • Prevents Blowouts: If one tire is wearing out faster than the rest, it can possibly lead to a dangerous blowout!
  • Improves Performance: Unevenly worn tires can cause undesirable shaking or vibration.
  • Maximizes Efficiency: Worn tires create drag, strain the engine, and increase your fuel consumption.
