How Often Should I Rotate My Tires?

How Often Should I Rotate My Tires?

Proper vehicle maintenance requires looking after parts of your car that you might take for granted now and then. This is why the Service Department at Bill Kay Chevrolet is here to bring you up to speed on the importance of tire rotations, how often they should be performed, and how we plan to lend a hand. If you think that you might indeed be due for this job, schedule an appointment online today!

Tire Rotation Timeline

First, let’s tackle the suggested timeline for tire rotations. In most cases, having this task performed every 6,000 to 8,000 miles should be a sufficient enough interval to ensure that all four tires are wearing down at an even rate. For many individuals, this works out to occur about every other oil change, meaning that you can bundle these routine jobs to save time. You should be aware, though, that certain factors can impact this timeframe, including your car’s age, condition, and drivetrain, in addition to your personal driving habits. If you’re still unsure, feel free to reach out to our staff via the Ask a Tech form.

Benefits of Routine Care

So, how do you stand to benefit from regular tire rotations? First and foremost, by moving these components around and preventing any one or two from wearing out more quickly than the others, you’ll have an easier time replacing all four at once. When this is done one by one, it’s generally more expensive, as tires are often sold in bulk. Additionally, since the leading pair are subject to extra stress, it’s helpful to give them a break by moving them to the back. By doing so, you’ll maintain optimal traction, thus keeping you and your loved ones safer. Not to mention, you’ll likely achieve better fuel economy!

Visit Us Today!

If you’re overdue for a tire rotation, make it a priority to visit us as soon as possible. In addition to some of the aforementioned service resources, we also boast a selection of ongoing specials, so don’t forget to check these out for some extra savings before stopping in. Once you’re here, our technicians will quickly assess your tires’ condition and tread depth to determine the ideal configuration for your rotation. If we happen to come across any underlying problems, such as a misalignment or under-inflation, we’ll be sure to let you know, as these can lead to bigger issues down the road.

How often should I rotate my tires? After reading this overview, you should now know that this task should be taken care of every 6,000 to 8,000 miles. Bill Kay Chevrolet is ready to help you out, so drop by our service bay during our accommodating hours!

I brought the car in for service and a problem with the side detection system. Marc took all my info he gave me estimation on the cost an would check to see if the issue was covered by my warranty and it was. He had a problem of fine the replacement part and called me to see if they could keep the car overnight. I had no problem with keeping the car over night and thank him for keeping informed. I got another call from Mar about 6:30 PM say they had got the part the car would be ready for the next day. Marc put in some long hours that day and I would like to once again thank Marc and the service department for the excellent service . Ray Townsend

Very satisfied with service. One suggestion is that dealership does not offer two way shuttle service. I did not need that day but May in future and could effect my using bill Kay if I needed to wait at home and be picked up. This should be a no brainer to get people to comeback and use the dealership.
