Tire Rotation at Bob Moore KIA
Your tires take care of you mile after mile, which is why you should take care of them. One of the simplest tasks to increase the life of your tires is a tire rotation. You can schedule service to have your tires rotated at Bob Moore KIA.
What is a Tire Rotation?
Tire rotation is a service provided at Bob Moore KIA to move your tires to a new position on the vehicle. Manufacturers recommend having tires rotated after so many miles. New tires are supposed to be rotated at 5000 miles. Regular tire rotations often happen when you get an oil change.
When the tires are rotated, the service technician will inspect the tire to see if the tread is wearing thin or if there are any visible issues. They will check the air pressure and get them rebalanced if there are problems.
Why You Need a Tire Rotation
One of the reasons to have your tires rotated is because it allows the tread to wear evenly on all tires and on both sides of the tires. The result is maximum tread life for each tire, which means you replace them less often. For example, the front tires on a front-wheel drive will wear more than the rear wheels, and the opposite is true for a rear-wheel drive.
When you keep the tread wear even on the tires, it improves traction as well as the handling of the vehicle. You will notice that taking corners and even braking is improved with even tread on the tires. The overall result is that your KIA is safer to drive.
How Tires are Rotated
Your tires can be rotated in different ways. How they are rotated depends on whether your model is FWD, RWD, or AWD. The service technician will also consider whether all four tires are the same size and if they are directional or non-directional.
Here are the various options:
- Front to back to opposite sides with rear tires moving to the front on the same side
- Front and back switch to opposite sides
- Rear moving to the opposite side of the front with the front tires moving back on the same side at the rear
- Front tires switch with each other and rear wheels switch with each other
