Rotating tires may sound like a really intimidating project for many car owners, and for good reason. It’s not impossible to do on your own, but if you don’t already own a good car jack, jack stands, tools to remove lug nuts, and a few other things, it might be best to leave this one to the professionals. The process of rotating tires should be done according to certain patterns to optimize the life of the tires and even out tire wear as much as possible.
If you do want to take your car in to get its tires rotated, be sure you are going to a reliable place. Trusting your car to experienced, trained service providers helps ease the mind and ensure everything gets done right. Visit Show Me Auto Mall for tire rotation and many more auto maintenance services.
If you want to stay on top of your tire maintenance, it is best to rotate your tires about three months after getting a new set of tires, and then every six months after that. If you drive far more or far less than most, going by time is not going to be as good a metric. Instead, you can keep track of how many miles you have driven since your last rotation with the trip computer in your car. If your tires are brand new, try to get them rotated for the first time between 3,000 and 4,000 miles. For tires that have already been rotated at least once, rotate your tires between 6,000 miles and 8,000 miles. This might sound frequent, especially if you commute or regularly go on long trips, but it will help keep your tires in their best condition.
