Tire Rotation

Regular tire rotation and service is an essential step in long-term tire maintenance. The tire industry recommends rotating your tires every 5,000 miles. Most tire manufacturers require routine tire rotations to maintain the tread wear warranty. By rotating your tires regularly, you can ensure the wear on your tire treads is even on all four tires. This extends the life of your tires and improves their performance and safety. You’ll get more mileage out of your tires and save money in the long run.

Why is tire rotation service important?

The roads you drive every day in Northern Virginia can be filled with hazards that can wreak havoc on your tires, like potholes, nails and broken glass. Even in the best of road conditions, your car’s normal weight is not distributed evenly on all four tires—the front tires bear more weight because of engine and steering pressure—and this heavier load will wear down your tires prematurely without proper tire rotations. Occasionally, drivers will try to DIY their tire rotation. However, given the complexity of the tire patterns and the dangers involved if done incorrectly, it’s best to bring your vehicle into the professionals at Virginia Tire & Auto.

What happens during a tire rotation at Virginia Tire & Auto?

At Virginia Tire & Auto, a tire rotation service includes:

  • Removing the tires
  • Inspecting the wear patterns
  • Completing a tire rotation in accordance with the correct rotation pattern
  • Resetting the Tire Pressure Monitors (TPMS), as applicable
  • Visual brake inspection

How often should I rotate my tires?

The industry rule of thumb is to have a tire rotation service performed every 5,000 miles. If your tires develop irregular wear—like damage from hitting a pothole or curb—you should have them rotated even sooner.
