Did you know there are myths about rotating your tires? Check out this list and see how many you've heard of.
1. There is only one way to do it
Your tires can be rotated in a variety of ways and no one way is the only way. When you get your tires rotated, your automotive specialist will recommend the best rotation for your current tires.
2. Forget the spare
Some trucks and SUVs have full-sized spare tires instead of donuts. Make sure to add the matching spare tire to the rotation schedule. When you get your tires rotated, it is important to have the quality and pressure checked in the spare to ensure driving safety in case it is needed.
3. Rotate tires after every oil change
You can't over-rotate your tires but you don't have to get one each time you get your oil changed. The recommended time is every 5,000-7,500 miles. If you are getting your oil changed at the recommended 3,000 miles you should get your tires rotated every other time.
4. If you rotate your tires, everything will be fine
Tire rotations are important to vehicle maintenance, but there are other things you must do to ensure vehicle and tire safety. Make sure to check the tire pressure regularly, schedule alignment checks, and have your suspension system inspected once a year.
