What is Tire Rotation?

Removing a wheel from a vehicle

When you regularly rotate your tires you prevent uneven tire wear and can extend the life of your entire set of tires. If you’re driving around Waterbury with a worn-out tire you can experience a loss of traction, lower fuel economy, and a higher risk of dangerous tire blowouts. The service team at Honda of Watertown is here to help you learn more about what tire rotation is, and why it’s important.


What Does Rotating Tires Mean?

What is tire rotation? It’s simple: tires are moved from one position to another on your vehicle. Usually, the front and rear tires are swapped. Depending on how much wear they’ve gotten on Southbury roads, or what drivetrain you have, they might also change sides. The rear left tire can be moved to the front right position. That’s a tire rotation pattern. Here’s how to figure out which tire rotation pattern is best for your car:

  • Front tires usually wear out faster because most cars carry more weight in the front.
  • The type of drivetrain your vehicle has will also affect the rate at which each tire wears down.
  • Front-wheel drive vehicles send power to the front axle and wheels to produce forward motion. This makes front tires wear down faster than they would in rear-wheel drive, all-wheel drive, or four-wheel drive models.
  • Your vehicle’s drivetrain will also affect the tire rotation pattern, to ensure that no tire wears down too fast compared to the whole set of tires.

What Does Tire Rotation Do?

  • Maintains Traction: When we talk about tires wearing out, what we’re really saying is that the tire’s tread depth is reduced, which leads to a loss of traction. Without proper tread depth you don’t have as much control when you’re driving, especially in wet conditions in Torrington.
  • Prevents Blowouts: Another risk that comes with a loss of tread depth is a higher risk of tire blowouts, which can be dangerous and pricey.
  • Improves Performance: If you have different levels of tread wear your car might vibrate while you’re driving.
  • Maximizes Efficiency: Worn tires create drag, strain the engine, and increase your fuel consumption.
