Tyre rotation is all about moving the existing tyres from one wheel to the other, either back to front, left to right or diagonally. This exercise is important as the tyres have the tendency to wear unevenly. While the front tyres experience wear on the outside edges, the rear tyres wear more evenly. Ignoring tyre rotation for a longer period would make the front tyres degrade much faster, leading to expensive replacements sooner.
- Uneven tyre wear : This can be checked by measuring the tread depth of the tyres at multiple spots. Variation in tread depth or uneven wear patterns can be easily identified by a certified technician.
- Uneven tread wear : Tyres on the front axle have different wear effect than the tyres on the rear axle.
- Noise and vibration : Unevenly worn tyres cause abnormal noises and vibration on the road, especially in the steering wheel.
- Ensures that each tyre receives the same amount of wear
- Keeps all the tyres in good condition for longer duration and improve fuel efficiency
- Helps the car to run optimally, without damaging the critical or expensive components
- Prolongs the life of the tyres considerably
- Prolongs the life of suspension components due to reduced vibrations
- Lets the driver enjoy smoother and comfortable drive
