Tire rotations, when done regularly, can improve the life expectancy and performance of your tires. Rotating your tires evenly distributes wear and tear on your tires. Because your tires are on of your vehicle's most important safety features rotating your tires enhances the safety of your vehicle.
Your front tires support more than half your vehicle weight, and so they tend to wear faster than the rear tires. Given that your tires are responsible for all steering control, and the majority of braking control, rotating your tires to ensure they are all in relatively the same condition will keep you safer while you are driving!
Maintaining properly balanced wheels on your vehicle will not only save money, it could save your life! If your tires are not properly balanced, your car might vibrate excessively at certain speeds because all four tires are not making even contact with the ground. If you find that your steering wheel is shaky, it is likely that one (or both) or your front tires are unbalanced. To the contrary, if you find the vibration occurring in your seat, your rear tires are likely unbalanced. You will get the most out of your tires if you keep them balanced.
Imbalanced tires have one section of the tire that is heavier/thicker than the others. To balance your tires, our technicians at Bustard Chrysler will mount the wheel on a tire balancing machine that spins the wheel to find the heaviest part. Once this spot on the tire is located, our technician will attach a lead weight on the opposite side of the tire.
Wheel balancing is a wise investment that will prolong the life of your tires and keep you safer on the road. Don't hesitate to contact us at Bustard Chrysler Listowel for this simple and inexpensive service!
