What is Tire Rotation?

Tire Rotation

A regular tire rotation schedule is important in preventing any one tire from wearing down too fast. When you get a tire rotation service, you lengthen the life of your tires, maintain better traction, prevent blowouts, and even improve fuel economy in Irvine and beyond. Learn more about tire rotation and more at the Volkswagen South Coast service team! We have plenty of car care tips and tricks to teach you!

What Does Rotating Tires Mean?

When you have your tires rotated, this means they are moved from one position to another on your vehicle. In most cases, the front tires will move to the rear and the rear tires will move to the front. They may also change sides depending on the drivetrain your vehicle has. Here are some tire rotation basics to keep in mind:

  • Most cars carry more weight at the front, so front tires will typically wear out faster, but the type of drivetrain your vehicle has will also affect the rate at which each tire wears down.
  • For example, in front-wheel drive vehicles, power is sent to the front axle and wheels to produce forward motion. Therefore the front tires will wear down faster than they would in rear-wheel drive, all-wheel drive, or four-wheel drive models.
  • This also means that your vehicle’s drivetrain will also affect the tire rotation pattern, to ensure that no tire wears down too fast compared to the whole set of tires.

What Does Tire Rotation Do?

  • Maintains Traction: When tires wear down, they lose tire tread depth. A loss of tread depth means traction is reduced, which can interfere with your ability to control the vehicle in certain situations. Preventing uneven tire wear helps ensure that all tires have the same amount of tread.
  • Prevents Blowouts: Tires become more likely to fail as they get worn down. If you’ve ever had one blow out as you drive around Costa Mesa, you’ll know how unpleasant and potentially dangerous it can be.
  • Improves Performance: Tires working together that have uneven wear often produce vibration, which you’ll eventually feel through the steering wheel.
  • Maximizes Efficiency: Worn tires create drag, strain the engine, and increase your fuel consumption.
