Have you ever wondered why you should bother getting the tires rotated on your car? Lots of car owners simply skip this service without realizing that there are a lot of good reasons to get the tires rotated. Here’s some information from Clark’s Professional Car Care to help you understand what happens.
Improve Tire Life
Keeping up with tire rotations is imperative for the lifespan of your car’s tires. Tire rotations help to balance out the workload among the tires, ensuring that they’re more likely to wear evenly. If you skip tire rotations, that can also lead to other problems with your car.
Get Better Gas Mileage
What do your tires have to do with your fuel mileage? Way more than you might realize. Keep in mind that your car’s tires connect directly with the road’s surface. In order to move the car, the car’s engine has to produce enough power to get the tires to start moving. When the tires aren’t in the best possible condition, that job gets more and more difficult. Eventually, it can become so difficult that the engine is burning more fuel than usual in order to make it happen.
Stronger Engine Performance
This can also mean that when your car’s tires aren’t in the best possible shape, your car’s engine performance suffers as well. That should be obvious from the standpoint of burning more fuel than usual, but it also adds to the wear and tear on your car’s engine. Oil gets dirtier, parts are under more strain, and the engine just isn’t as efficient as it was.
Safety and Fewer Repairs
Ideally, the best way to keep your car as safe as possible and to avoid surprise repairs is to keep up with routine maintenance. That goes for all of the recommended services in your car’s owner’s manual, but it also means that seemingly insignificant services like tire rotations are truly vital. You’re doing yourself a huge favor by making sure that you’re taking the best possible care of your car.
