4 BENEFITS OF GETTING A TIRE ROTATION FOR YOUR MAZDA
Your tires can suffer a lot of wear. When you rotate your tires, your spread the wear, so no one tire or pair of tires wears out faster than the others. Worn tires mean you have to replace tires sooner than necessary. As your Mazda dealer, we have the technicians and technology to make your tire rotation a quick and simple procedure.
4 BENEFITS OF A TIRE ROTATION BY YOUR MAZDA DEALER
YOU EXTEND THE LIFE OF YOUR TIRES
As a rule, your front tires will wear out faster than your rear tires. The front of your car carries 60% of your car’s weight due to the engine, transmission, and other components. By shifting the tires between the front and the rear you equalize the wear on all of the tires. This allows the tires to last longer and also helps to prevent damage.
Tires can be expensive to replace. When you extend the life of your tires, you save money by delaying the need to buy replacements. This allows you the comfort of being able to plan for the eventual tire replacement.
IT’S IMPORTANT FOR YOUR TIRE TREAD WARRANTY
Tire manufacturers place warranties on their tires. These warranties assume that under normal conditions, a particular tire tread will last for a certain length of time. If the tread wears out faster than it should, you can get a pro-rate discount on replacement tires. For this warranty to apply, your tires have to be regularly rotated according to the manufacturer’s schedule.
REDUCED GAS CONSUMPTION
Tires that are correctly and regularly rotated can save you money at the pump. Tires that are wearing unevenly produce more friction when they travel over a surface. Friction slows down any moving object, and to overcome this friction you need to use more force. Your car’s engine has to work harder to overcome the friction resistance.
When you rotate the tires, you reduce this friction by providing a more even wear pattern. Your engine doesn’t have to work as hard to move your car, and this reduces your gas consumption.
YOU REDUCE WEAR ON OTHER COMPONENTS
If your tires are wearing unevenly, this places additional stress on your braking system, your engine, and your transmission. If your tires are worn, your braking system has to exert effort to slow and stop your car. This leads to faster wear on the friction coverings on the brake pads, extra pressure on the calipers, and can heat your brake fluid.
Your transmission suffers wear due to the extra effort required to shift gears caused by the increased friction of unevenly worn tires. As mentioned, your engine will also use more gas and take the unnecessary strain in moving your car. Rotating your tires reduces or removes all of these problems. By spreading the wear across all of your tires, you can save extra maintenance costs.
The numerous benefits of rotating your tires make it a no-brainer decision. Call us today at Wayne Mazda and arrange for your rotation.
