Need a Tire Rotation in Johnston?
For a lot of people the term "tire rotation" makes little sense. Isn't rotation something that tires do on a daily basis, why do we have to have someone rotate them? Tire rotation doesn't mean the rotation of a single tire, it means switching the front tires with the back tires. Basically, each tire is removed from the vehicle completely and then switched to a different position. This is done in order to ensure even wear as you drive, thereby increasing the stability of your vehicle's handling while also increasing fuel economy as well.
People who drive front-wheel drive vehicles especially need to have their tires rotated. The front tires bear more weight than the rear tires and are worn out more easily. Because of this it's important to rotate the tires so that there is even wear on all four tires and the front two don't wear out faster than the other two in back.
At Acura of Johnston we have highly skilled technicians who can determine when you need a tire rotation and what pattern your tires should be rotated in. Not sure if your tires need to be rotated? One thing you can do to check is by inserting a penny head first into the tread of your tires. The more Abe's head sticks above the tread, the more worn out it is.
