If you notice any problems with your tread, tire alignment, or other tire issues, we strongly recommend you come in to see a professional as soon as possible. Without proper tire care, you risk the dangers of blowing out a tire on the road.

The amount of wear and tear on certain areas of your tires vary depending on the amount of friction. Front tires tend to see more erosion because they handle much of the cornering forces during turns, which is even greater for front wheel drive vehicles.
Getting your tires rotated regularly allows for all tires to wear more evenly over time and increases their lifespan. Tire rotation is performed to even out tread wear and give the front tires a little break on the back end. Tire rotation patterns vary for each vehicle. For most vehicles, the tire rotates front to back. Some manufacturers recommend a cross rotation pattern that includes the spare tire.
