Tires are the only part of a car that touches the ground. Unfortunately, many people overlook the importance of taking good care of their tires, but there are a lot of benefits that come from routine vehicle maintenance. Jack Stoldt Auto Service Center has served the Springfield, IL area for decades, and we can help you maintain the safety and performance of your vehicle from when you first bought it. Here are four reasons you should rotate your tires on a routine basis.
Your Tires Will Last Longer
It’s been proven that tire rotation improves the longevity of your tires. This is because your tires wear differently on the road, and a rotation ensures that your tread is more even throughout the life of your tires. Unfortunately, many people need to replace their tires when they don’t rotate them regularly because one or two tires wear down more quickly than the others.
Better Traction and Stopping Power
During the winter especially, you need to depend on improved traction and stopping ability. Tire rotation maintains gripping power to prevent faster rain, snow, and ice. Jack Stoldt Auto Services Center can ensure that you and your family remain safe by rotating and aligning your tires. This added step ensures you have responsive steering and don’t experience pulling in one direction.
Increased Fuel Economy
Did you know that your tires affect your fuel economy? Poorly maintained tires can cost you money at the gas pump by reducing your travel distance for each tank. In addition, when your tires don’t grip the pavement evenly, or one of them isn’t inflated properly, your engine works harder. This results in diminished gas mileage over time. This alone is worth a stop at our shop in Springfield, IL.
Better Vehicle Health Overall
Tire health impacts other components of your vehicle. For example, poorly aligned tires can wear down your suspension. Performing a car repair on your wheel bearings, rear differential, axles, or rims can be significantly more expensive than having your tires rotated regularly. However, with better vehicle health comes savings because your car isn’t in the shop for extensive car maintenance.
