What Does Rotating Your Tires do?

So, what does rotating your tires do? The drivetrain in your vehicle is one of the top parts that is impacted by worn-out tires especially when traveling to different parks in Yukon. As you brake, accelerate, and navigate the different terrains in El Reno, friction between your tires builds up. Once created, friction can increase tire tread wear. Below is how tire treads will wear differently on different drivetrains:

  • Front-wheel drive: Front tires will wear the fastest due to the engine power being directed to both of the front wheels.
  • Rear-wheel drive: Rear tires will wear first, but at a much slower rate than the front tires because engine power is sent to the rear wheels. The front tires are still controlling braking and steering.
  • All-wheel drive: Tires will wear evenly because the engine distributes power to all the wheels. However, some experts say rear tires might still wear faster.
  • Advanced All-wheel drive: When traveling beyond Mustang, you might experience diverse terrain. These systems can direct engine power to a specific tire which will wear that tire out more than others.

What if I Don’t Rotate My Tires?

Why rotate my tires? What happens if I don’t? Skipping regular services to maintain your vehicle’s condition can lead to more problems which means more money. If you choose not to rotate your tires every 5,000-7,500 miles or every time you receive an oil change, it can lead to the bigger more expensive problems below:

  • Flat Tires
  • Poor Traction
  • Increase skidding and swerving on roads
  • Faster brake pad deterioration
  • Tire blowouts
