Why Should I Rotate My Tires?
Tire rotations ensure that one part of the tire does not get worn down prematurely, which can decrease vehicle performance and even cause an accident. Tires should be rotated periodically, following the rotation patterns indicated by your vehicle manufacturer or tire manufacturer.
Tire rotation benefits include:
- Balanced handling
- Consistent wheel traction throughout the tire set
- Even tire wear
- Increased performance
What is Tire Balancing?
In order to balance a tire, the mass of the tire must be distributed evenly around the axle when mounted on the wheel to create a smooth, pleasant ride. Out-of-balance tires can shorten the life of your tires, wheel bearings, shock absorbers, and other vital suspension components. If your vehicle vibrates around 40-45 mph, chances are that your tires are not balanced properly and are at risk of damaging these parts.
How Often Should I Have My Tires Rotated?
On average tires should be rotated every 3,000 to 5,000 miles, even if they aren’t showing any immediate signs of wear. For your convenience, tire rotations can be performed while your vehicle is in the garage for your regular oil changes. Our technicians will inspect for uneven wear, damage, and debris to ensure that you are driving on a safe set of tires.
How Much Does a Tire Rotation Cost?
At each local Fisher Service location, the basic tire rotation price is $15, with a four wheel tire balance running $60. However, be on the lookout for service special coupons to save money on your next tire rotation! We rotate these coupons often, so check on a regular basis to see if you can get an even more affordable price.
