Automobiles on the roads around Burke, VA, need to include tire rotations as part of a regular maintenance schedule. For most cars, trucks, and SUVs, that means a visit to a licensed garage at around every 5000 to 8000 miles. The variation depends on the owner’s driving habits and the vehicle’s type of drivetrain.

Regular tire rotation helps keep a vehicle’s wheels in balance, extend the life of the tires, and maintain better traction and handling on wet and dry surfaces. It also reduces uneven tread wear by moving the tires from front-to-back and from side-to-side. At Wiygul Automotive Clinics, our professional mechanics perform tire rotations at the cost of $20 per auto.

No matter what the model might be, every tire rotation has to follow a specific pattern to ensure the best result. Front tires carry more of the vehicle’s weight, so they have to be rotated to the rear axle for smoother, even tread wear on all four tires. For a vehicle with front-wheel drive, the tires wear out even faster than on one with rear-wheel drive.

When driving, the majority of vehicle owners take left turns slightly faster than right turns. That results in the front left tire wearing down slightly quicker than the right front tire. Because of that, technicians switch the front left tire with the right rear tire and the front right with the rear left.

By following this pattern, Wiygul mechanics ensure every tire rotation on Burke, VA autos extend the life of the set of tires. That means owners buy fewer tires over the life of their car, SUV, or truck. The more even tread wear also reduces the number of times the owner has to stop for fuel.

Tire rotation does not take a long time to complete. Since the maintenance schedule for an oil change is roughly the same as a tire rotation, our technicians can perform both at the same service visit with no additional loss of time to the customer. Before scheduling either one, every owner needs to contact their local dealership, check their manual, or determine the exact requirements on the manufacturer’s website.

Owners can put off the first rotation on a new set for a short time. Uneven wear builds up over time though, and drivers put themselves at risk for a blowout or having to buy new tires when they could use those funds elsewhere.

In addition to tire rotation, Burke, VA auto owners also need a wheel balancing service about every 6,000 to 8,000 miles or whenever they replace one or more tires. Balancing compliments tire rotation to promote even tread wear and improve fuel efficiency. A wheel balancing service at Wiygul is $20 per tire.

To find the nearest Wiygul Automotive Clinic, call us today at 866-702-8050. Our customer support staff can assist you in scheduling tire rotations or any other service needed for your auto.
