What is Kia Optima Tire Rotation?

A tire rotation is exactly what it sounds like. You remove the tires from the car, rotate them and put them back on in a different arrangement. The standard rotation pattern is to move the front tires straight back, so the driver’s side front tire is now the driver’s side rear tire, and the passenger’s side front tire becomes the passenger’s side rear  And then move the back tires forward, but diagonally, so the driver’s side back tire becomes the passenger’s side front tire, and the passenger’s side back tire is now the driver’s side front tire. Still with me? I promise that the rotation isn't as complicated as it sounds. The purpose of a tire rotation is to extend the life of the car’s tires and their tread. Tires wear at different rates, depending on where they are on the car. The rear and front tires don’t wear at the same speed, and neither do the left and right tires, especially if you have any sort of alignment issue. This is white we follow a rotation pattern. Rotating your tires keeps the tread wear and tear even, which, in turn, makes sure that they have a long life. That’s a good thing, right?

When do you need a Tire Rotation?

Scheduled maintenance

When’s the last time you cracked open your owner’s manual and looked into rotating your tires? You should rotate your tires on a schedule. Your manufacturer may mandate that rotation 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 rotation is to help the tread of 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 rotate those things.

Car is pulling

No, you’re not going crazy. If your tires are due for a 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.

How urgent is a Tire Rotation?

You can keep driving your car when you need a tire rotation. For a while, it will be perfectly safe. But every mile you drive when you need a rotation is a mile that you’re causing uneven wear and tear to the tires, diminishing their lifespan, and pushing up the date of when you have to spend more money replacing them.
