Regularly-scheduled maintenance is absolutely paramount in keeping your new Mazda car, crossover, or SUV running strong for years to come. Because you know this, it’s likely you’ve heard about tire rotations, and that you need to have them completed regularly. But what is tire rotation? How often should you rotate your tires? Our service team at Partyka Mazda near Shelton will help you learn more about tire rotation FAQs below!

Why Rotate Tires

Rotating your tires is crucial for a number of reasons. Because some tires work harder than others depending on your vehicle’s drivetrain and your driving style, tires wear unevenly. Uneven tires are dangerous. The following complications are avoidable by performing regularly-scheduled tire rotations:

  • Blowouts
  • Flat tires
  • Reduced traction
  • Poor handling/control
  • Full tire failure

Rotating your tires promotes even wear. Even car tire wear improves your safety on Hamden roads by maintaining traction, balance, and proper handling. Of course, it also prolongs the lifespan of your tires. Drivers with a full-size spare may also choose to rotate this tire through their rotation to further extended tire life!

How Often Should I Get a Tire Rotation

You’re probably wondering, “how often should I get a tire rotation?” You should always refer to your vehicle’s owner’s manual for the most accurate information regarding factory-recommended maintenance schedules. Generally, most modern vehicles should look to schedule service for a tire rotation roughly every 5,000 miles. As an easy way to stay on top of this, some New Haven drivers opt for a tire rotation every time they get an oil change.
