If you own a car, there’s no escaping the maintenance that comes with it. We at CarAdvise know that all of the moving parts in keeping your car healthy can be confusing. If you need a tire rotation or tire repair, don’t fret – here’s 5 tips for success.
Tip: Read your car’s owner’s manual. How often to rotate tires? For tire rotation, most manufacturers list the ideal tire rotation patterns and tire replacement timelines in the owner’s manual. Once you take a few minutes to read your owner’s manual, you’ll no longer be wondering how often to rotate tires.
Tip: Don’t mix the size or type of tires on your vehicle. We know it’s tempting to just throw on an old tire you may have laying around when it’s time for a repair, but that could lead to even more damage to your car.
Tip: Don’t wait until it’s too late. We know that car maintenance can seem overwhelming, but waiting until it’s too late to get your tires rotated could be worse in the long run. If you can’t locate the tire rotation timeline from information in your owner’s manual, it’s a good rule of thumb to have your tires rotated every six months or 6,000-8,000 miles.
