Tire rotation refers to the regular practice of switching the position of
each tire on the car.
rotation helps to equalize tread wear and is critical to gain the maximum
life from your tire investment.
Tips/Suggestions: Refer to your owner's manual for the
recommended rotation interval and pattern; generally a rotation interval
of 6,000 miles is recommended. The rotation pattern varies with different
makes and models, which shows the tire locations during rotation. Some
vehicles have different size tires on the front and back or directional
tires. This limits the locations that a tire may take on the vehicle. When
in doubt, check the owner's manual or consult a professional technician
at Integrity Auto Repair for guidance. Tire rotation time also offers a good opportunity to have
the tires and wheels balanced. It's another step you can take to maximize
your tire investment.
Keep an eye out for these common
signs that you may need new tires or service. If your vehicle exhibits any
of these symptoms, Bring it in for us to look at:
When driving, your car
pulls to one side or the other.
The numbers in the tire size refer to its width,
aspect ratio, and wheel diameter. "185/75R14" means the tire is
185 mm wide, has an aspect ratio (that is, the width divided by
the height) of 75%, and fits on a 14" rim.
"R" means radial tire. They're all radials nowadays. Speed
ratings are usually inserted before the "R." The most common
speed ratings are HR (good for 130mph), VR (149 mph), and ZR
(more than 149 mph).
