Why It’s Important to Regularly Rotate Your Tires

March 31st, 2021 by

 

Tire maintenance is paramount for your driving safety and your checkbook. That’s why Virginia drivers should remember to regularly rotate their tires at Moore Cadillac Richmond.

Unless otherwise specified by their owner’s manual, Richmond, VA motorists are recommended to get their tires rotated roughly every 5,000 to 8,000 miles for even wear. Balanced handling and extended tire life are just two reasons to rotate tires.

Depending on your Cadillac vehicle’s front, rear, or all-wheel drive mode, your front or rear tires may wear faster. By rotating tires, you alleviate stress on the more frequently used ones.

Failing to rotate your tires routinely leads to:

Permanent wear pattern
Lower tread levels, leading to increased braking distance
A rougher, louder ride
Reduced tire life

The recommended tire tread depth is 10/32 of an inch. A higher risk of potential accidents and increased braking distance are two risks of low tire tread depth. Don’t let your tire tread depth get low or go bald! Schedule your next tire rotation at Moore Cadillac Richmond today!
