Tire Rotation Service In Schaumburg, IL

tire-rotationA tire rotation is a service where your front tires are moved to the rear and the rear tires are moved to the front. Why is this service needed? Because your tires wear differently from front to back. Since your front tires are the ones that control steering and support the weight of the engine they suffer much more wear and tear than the rear tires, therefore your front tires wear out faster. So to get the most life out of your tires you should rotate them to distribute the wear load.

There are different tire rotations based on the type of vehicle you are driving. Some manufacturers recommend simply moving back to front and front to back all on the same side. This is due to some tires being unidirectional, meaning they are meant to always spin in the same direction. This is not the case with all tires, in which case the front and moved to the back and the rears are moved to the front, but to opposite corners.
