When it comes to improving the lifespan of your tires, scheduling regular tire rotations is one of the best things you can do to get more mileage out of those rings of rubber. So, when should you rotate your tires? We recommend having your tires rotated every 5,000 miles or so. Checking off tire rotations and oil changes at the same time is a great way to keep up with maintenance and ensure that your car has everything it needs to keep running smoothly as you drive around Columbus.

Why Regular Tire Rotations Matter

What happens if you don't rotate your tires regularly? They'll wear out unevenly, which can be a problem if you're trying to get as much life out of your tires as possible. Tire rotations help to maintain even tread wear on your tires, which helps them last longer and perform better. Uneven tire tread can make it more difficult for your vehicle to gain traction, which can create efficiency issues at best and safety hazards at worst.

So, what do tire rotations do, exactly? Your tires don't wear evenly on their own. For example, the front tires tend to wear out more on the outside because they're responsible for steering. Swapping your front tires with the rear tires with a tire rotation helps tires wear more evenly by giving them ground time from a different position on your vehicle.
