Rotated, properly inflated tires give you a smooth, safe and less costly ride!
Maintaining proper air pressure in your tires protects against tire wear, gives you the best ride and allows you to handle your car safely. You should check your tires’ air pressure when the tires are cool. Most tires require air pressure of between 32-44 PSI (pounds per square inch). Tires should generally be filed according to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Both over inflation and under inflation cause excessive tire wear.
Tires are costly, so you will want to get maximum wear out of them. Having your tires rotated regularly will give you a smoother ride and will extend the life of your tires by making sure they wear evenly. Whether you have radial or non-radial tires will determine the type of rotation required.
Convenience is the reason you should have your tires rotated at your AOCA member fast lube. When having your oil changes, simply ask if its time for a tire rotation.
