All cars wear differently some quicker on the front some quicker on the rear. You’ll give them more mileage moving them around frequently between the faster or slower moving areas on the vehicle. Consequently this will save you money rather than wearing out one pair quicker than the other and needing to replace.
There are different methods and patterns for your rotation, which depending on the vehicle and drive type. An example is below – trust our staff to use the correct pattern and method to suit your vehicle best:
Staggered fitment on vehicles means that the tyres on your front or rear are wider or narrower than the rear, or vice versa.
This means you can’t do a normal rotation from front to rear, only swapping opposite side on the same axle. And this can only be done if your tyres are not directional.
Sometimes it can benefit to flip the tyre on the rim if a wheel alignment issue can’t be rectified. Otherwise, a wheel alignment should counteract uneven wearing of your tyres.
You may not notice it at first, however without any form of rotation on your vehicle you will undoubtedly be driving on uneven tyres. Particularly with modern vehicles being front wheel drive, the front tyres wear out a lot faster than the rear. This can impact performance and handling, specifically in wet or dirt road conditions.
Let us take the worry out of rotations for you – as we offer complimentary rotations with every tyre purchase** at ALPHA Tyres. We can send you a friendly reminder when you should be due for rotation, and will always rotate your tyres when we fit two tyres instead of four to maximise your value for money.
