Why Is It Important To Rotate Your Tires?
When you drive, if your vehicle is a front-wheel-drive model, the front tires work harder than then rear to propel the vehicle forward. This leads to increased wear on the front tires and uneven treads. Neglecting to rotate your tires will cause your vehicle to need front tires more frequently and result in your purchasing pairs of tires more often. The chain reaction goes on to lead to problems with vehicle handling, decreased traction and performance and potentially larger problems associated with your wheels.
