Tire rotation is one of the more common services your vehicle will need. Having your tires rotated at regular intervals is a great way to keep them in good condition — and to keep yourself and your passengers safe and comfortable while you’re at it. When you’re looking for a place to bring your GMC Sierra or Buick Encore in for tire rotation service near Hartland, Michigan, you’re in luck: come to LaFontaine Buick GMC! We are proud to serve Buick and GMC drivers from Milford Charter Township, Wisconsin — and beyond!
It’s a simple fact that driving wears your tires down. After all, they are made from rubber, and the constant pressure of the hard road will slowly wear them down. However, due to a number of factors, they will not wear down evenly. This is where tire rotation comes into play. When you come to LaFontaine Buick GMC for a tire rotation service near Milford, Michigan, we will remove all four wheels from your vehicle and rotate their position. The wheels on the front will be moved to the rear, and the wheels on the rear will be moved to the front. In many cases, depending on your drivetrain and your tires’ directionality, we will also switch the tires on the right and left sides. The result? Your tires will get a chance to wear down at a much more even rate.
If you don’t have your tires rotated regularly, they will wear down unevenly. One of the consequences of this is that you will have to have your tires replaced sooner than you would if you had been rotating them regularly. Shortened tire lifespan is just one of the potential problems caused by unevenly worn tires. They can also make it harder for you to handle your vehicle with precision and even affect its gas mileage.
