Tire Rotation in Burlington Ontario

Tire rotation is the practice of moving the wheels and tires of a vehicle from one position to another. Having your tires rotated helps protect them against uneven wear and helps to maximize the life of your tires. Tires exhibit some form of wear based on a number of factors including: wheel alignment, kilometers driven, driving style, and tire location on the vehicle. For example, the front tires bear more weight than the rear tires because of the weight of the engine. By moving or "rotating" the tires as recommended by the vehicle's manufacturer, tires are able to wear more evenly which helps to extend the life of the tires.

You should have your tires rotated every 10,000 km.

Vehicle manufacturers recommend specific rotation patterns depending on the vehicle, the drive system (front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, or all-wheel drive), and type of tires. In general, front-wheel drive vehicles tend to wear out the front tires faster than the rear tires, and rear-wheel drive vehicles wear out the rear tires faster.

Did you know?

Certain tires cannot be rotated, or can only be rotated in certain patterns due to uni-directional or asymmetric tread designs. Furthermore, some vehicles are equipped with front tires that are a different size than the rear tires, which prevents swapping tires between axles.
