When do you need a Tire Rotation?
When’s the last time you cracked open your owner’s manual?
Tires should be rotated on a schedule. Your manufacturer may mandate that schedule, but if not, wherever you get your tires installed will.
So, you can do one of two things. You can follow that scheduled maintenance, or you can ignore it, and pay for new tires a lot sooner.
Uneven wear and tear
The entire purpose of a tire rotation is to help your tires wear and tear evenly. If they’re doing so unevenly - say, the right tires are wearing out far faster than the left ones, or the front tires look much different than the rear ones - that’s a sure sign that it’s time to get those things rotated.
Car is pulling
No, you’re not going crazy. If your tires are due for a tire rotation, it might feel like your car is pulling to the left or to the right all the time. In all likelihood, your car is actually doing that. And a likely culprit are your tires that are in dire need of being rotated.
