Sam Leman Auto Group, based in Illinois, recently shared information on its website about tire rotation.
The post said that tire rotation is important for passenger and driver safety, as well as for the health of the car. Rotating tires allows the tires to wear more evenly, which helps prevent them from becoming bald or worn down in one area. This also helps prevent accidents.
Uneven wear on the tires can also impact gas mileage or cause the car to pull in one direction, rather than driving straight. The car must work harder in this case to compensate for the uneven wear, which means more gas usage than usual.
Extreme wear or bald spots on tires also make the tires go flat or blow out more easily, which could be hazardous while driving. A blowout or flat can also become dangerous to other drivers if you lose control of a car.
