All vehicles require service and preventative maintenance to operate as best they can. Tire rotations are a very important service and help prolong the life of tires and ensure that tread wear is even across front and back tires. It is recommended by many vehicle manufacturers that tires are rotated every 3,000 to 5,000 miles, which conveniently lines up with the oil change intervals for most vehicles. When it is time to have the tires rotated on your vehicle, schedule a tire rotation with the experts at Mike Murphy Kia of Brunswick in southeast Georgia.
All vehicles experience tire wear differently. This changes depending on the drivetrain, whether it is front-, rear- or all-wheel drive, and where the engine is located. Most vehicles have the engine in the front and use front-wheel drive, which means that the front tires are experiencing wear from carrying the weight of the engine, handling the turning, braking and acceleration for the vehicle. However, if the vehicle uses rear-wheel drive and has a rear-mounted engine, the rear tires will more than likely experience more wear. For this reason, it is important to have tires rotated so that the tires have more equal wear.
