Why Should I Get A Tire Rotation And Wheel Alignment?

Your tires do a lot of work. They keep you firmly on the road, get you over potholes, through tough terrain, and handle both fast and slow speeds. With all of this work they wear and may even become unaligned. Having your tires rotated frequently and having your wheels aligned when needed greatly improves your vehicle's reliability and can even save you money in the long run.

Tire Rotation Service - Why Should I Rotate My Tires?

Weight on your vehicle isn't necessarily distributed evenly. The amount of weight that is placed upon each tire depends on whether you have front-wheel, rear-wheel, or all-wheel drive. A front-wheel drive has more of a 60/40 front-to-rear distribution while the rear-wheel and all-wheel has around a 50/50. You also have to consider how you drive, how much you drive, and where you drive. For example, if you drive a lot then your tires will become worn faster. Also, driving on the right side of the road, like we do in the US, makes the left front tire more worn. These are all things to consider when you think about tire rotation.

What does rotating my tires do to help?

When a tire rotation is performed the front tires are switched with the back tires and are moved from the right to the left side. This ensures that wear is being evenly distributed and allows your tires to be used for a longer period of time. A tire rotation should be done when you get your oil changed.

Wheel Alignment Service - Why Should I Have My Wheels Aligned?

Have you ever felt like your car was drifting to one side even when the steering wheel was straight? It could be because your wheels need to be realigned. Your car could be unaligned for a number of reasons: hitting a pothole, driving over a curb, getting into an accident, hitting something on the ground, and etc. Whatever the reason, it should be realigned by a professional. Special tools, that can sometimes adjust a tire by mere fractions of an inch, are required as well as specific knowledge of how to use them.

What are the benefits of getting my wheels aligned?

Once your wheels are properly aligned not only will it be easier to steer, but it will most definitely save you money in the long run. Driving with your wheels unaligned can cause severe damage to your steering column, tires, and suspension and can even affect your gas mileage. Your alignment should be checked often and should be realigned when you notice that it's beginning to drift.
