Every driver on the roads around Clinton, MD, require a tire rotation for their vehicle as part of a routine maintenance schedule. That means a visit to a professional garage every 5000 to 8000 miles. The variation in mileage depends on every vehicle’s drivetrain and the owner’s driving routine.
Regular tire rotation helps keep the wheels in balance, maintain better traction and handling on dry and wet surfaces, and extend the life of the tires. At Wiygul Automotive Clinics, our professional mechanics perform each tire rotation at the cost of only $20 per vehicle.
No matter what the vehicle model might be, tire rotations have to follow a specific pattern to ensure the best results. This is a front-to-back and side-to-side switch that reduces uneven tread wear. The front tires carry more of the vehicle’s weight, so they must be rotated to the rear axle for smoother wear over time. Front-wheel drive vehicles wear out tires even faster than on a rear-wheel drive auto.
Side-to-side rotation is needed since drivers usually take their left turns slightly faster than right turns. That wears down the front left tire faster than the front right tire. Because of that, technicians switch the front left with the right rear and the front right with the left rear.
By following this pattern, Wiygul mechanics ensure every Clinton, MD tire rotation works to extend the life of the tires. Owners now spend less on new tires over the life of their auto and improve fuel efficiency.
Tire rotation is a short process. Since the maintenance schedule for tire rotation is roughly the same as an oil change, mechanics can perform both on the same visit with no additional wait time for the vehicle owner.
If the tires are a new set, then the owner can put off the first rotation for a short time. We do not recommend this, however since uneven wear builds up over time, and drivers put themselves at increased risk for a blowout at the worst possible time, or simply having to buy new tires when they could probably use those funds elsewhere.
In addition to regular tire rotation, Clinton, MD automobile owners also need to schedule a wheel balancing service when they replace one or more tires and then every 6,000 to 8,000 miles afterward. It complements the tire rotation to prolong the life of each tire, improve fuel efficiency, and promote even tread wear. Each balancing service at Wiygul is $20 per wheel.
