Time to Rotate | New Orleans Auto Care

Have a New Orleans auto care expert at Twin Tire regularly rotate your tires. They'll last longer.

Now that school is out, you spend much of your summer figuring out ways to keep the kids amused. Like taking them to the Carousel Gardens Amusement Park. You think of it as a bit of kid maintenance.

Although your attention is focused on the kids and their activities, you also have to keep up with other items. Like car maintenance and making sure your ride is safe and available for all your other activities. One item of car maintenance that's easy to overlook - or just plain skip - is tire rotation. As long as they're not flat, it really doesn't matter, does it?

Well, yes, rotation matters if you want your tires to last longer. And if you want a comfortable, safe ride.

"If you left all four tires in the same corner of your car for years and years, some tires would wear out faster than others. Worse, some of the treads in individual tires could wear unevenly, with the inside or outside wearing out first,"  auto.howstuffworks.com says.

Auto.howstuffworks. com adds, "Uneven tread wear is unavoidable. The weight of a car is not distributed evenly to all four corners. The engine, the heaviest single thing in a car, is usually at the front, so the front tires tend to carry more weight. The front tires also take care of all the steering duties. Plus, when you apply the brakes, the weight of the car shifts forward. Think about how often you brake while cornering, and you'll begin to understand why front tires almost always wear out faster than rear tires."

So it's money wise and safety wise to make sure your tires are regularly rotated - every 3,000 to 7,000 miles depending on your car and your driving. The best way to know if they need rotating is to look at the wear, think about how your car is handling, and consult the tire care professionals at one of Twin Tire Auto Care's locations.
