Why Do I Need to Get My Tires Rotated?

As one of the most important pieces of automotive equipment, your tires affect a lot of areas on your vehicle, such as your car's ability to brake, its transmission and even your its body frame.

Due to this, there are many things that people have to keep track of when it comes to their tires, including:

  • Tread Levels
  • Sidewall Condition
  • Air Pressure
  • Alignment

When it comes to tread, the best thing to do is to get your tires rotated on a consistent basis. This will ensure that the tread wears down evenly and doesn't cause your car to go out of alignment.

How do I know if my car's tread is too low? Do a "penny test" to find out. Put a penny with Lincoln's head upside down in the tire's tread. If you can see Lincoln's hair, you are probably in need of a new set of tires.

Another important thing to keep an eye on is your tires' air pressure. Your tires require a kind of "Goldilocks"-zone of air pressure that is not too high and not too low. If your pressure becomes too low, not only do you run the risk of your tires blowing out, but you could also be looking at a bent body frame. If it's too high, your tires also run the risk of blowing out, while also putting too much stress your car's transmission.

What Are Other Tire Damage Symptoms I Should Look out For?

Aside from loss of tread or decreased air pressure, there are also several other signs that your tires are about to fail, such as:

  • Bubbles and bulges in the tires' sidewalls
  • Feeling strong vibrations in your steering wheel
  • Cuts or punctures in the tire

Bulges and bubbles in your sidewall should be dealt with at once, as they could indicate potential tire failure, while any cuts or punctures in you tire are obviously going to affect your tires' air pressure.

Any vibrations or strong pulling to either the left or right when you take your hand off the steering wheel indicate possible alignment issues and should also be fixed as soon as possible.
