Tire Rotations

What is a tire rotation?

Tire rotation is more than just spinning your tires, it's moving them to different positions in order to ensure even wear. Rotation patterns  vary depending on your drive system.


Why do I need to do it?

Fact is: tires wear unevenly. The fronts typically wear faster because they steer  and stop your car. Tire rotation helps even them out  to give you the most life from your tires, maintain  traction, and in the long run can help save you money. Remember, not rotating your tires may  affect your tire manufacturer's warranty.

 

But...  my tires LOOK fine...

You may not see the wear, but if you wait too long you will... and you might feel it too.

 

When do I do it?

Regular rotations are key. Rotate your tires every 5,000 to 8,000 miles or as recommended.

 

Where do I go?

Call Dorian Quick Lane for service hours and more, no appointment necessary.

What should I know about tires?

The tread on your tires is key to their performance. Good, high quality rubber helps  maintain traction, channels water away (which helps prevent  hydroplaning), and keeps you moving and stopping safely.


How  do I know if they're worn?

Fact is: all tires wear  out over time. When you see that the tread is even with  the wear bars, or when you do the penny test and can  see all of Lincoln's head... you need new tires. It's  time to replace them.

 

How  do I maximize my miles?

Proper inflation is critical  to even tread wear and maximized fuel economy. Check your  tire pressure every month especially as temperatures change. Cold weather can cause a decrease in tire pressure. So remember  to make sure they are filled to the PSI rating listed in  your driver's side door frame.

Don't forget the spare and have all your tires checked if:  your tire warning light comes on, you hit a pot hole, you notice increased vibration, reduced traction, braking, handling, cracked sidewalls, uneven tread wear, or a drop in fuel  economy.

 

How  often should I replace them?

It is recommended you replace  your tires every 6 years regardless of tread wear.
