Tire Rotations And Changes

Routine tire rotations at an interval of about 5,000-7,500 miles are crucial to getting the longest wear with your tires. Acceleration, braking and cornering all put stresses on tires, as the vehicle’s weight and inertia come into play during routine driving. Rotating them according to manufacturer’s recommendations will even out wear patterns and improve road manners and drivability.

With careful maintenance, routine driving and number of miles per year, a set of tires can generally last about six years. At Groove Ford, we’re happy to do a free inspection of your vehicle during a visit. That includes taking a look at your brakes and rotors, inspecting the wheels themselves and recommending a rotation or any other service that might be indicated.

Tire Types

Here’s a brief rundown of a few different tire types that can be the best fit for your vehicle and your lifestyle. At Groove Ford, you can come to us for a great selection of tire types for different vehicles, terrains and seasons. Here are some pretty typical tire types for drivers in Centennial, CO:

  • All season tires: Most drivers find that all season tires are the best compromise of traction, handling, long wear and ride quality. All season tires usually feature a pattern of grooves and ribs that help disperse water and resist hydroplaning, and a tread compound that’s designed for long wear and low noise.
  • Touring tires: Touring tires offer the same kind of long wear and year-round traction as all season tires, but are designed for improved ride quality and low noise. Touring tires are a perfect choice for luxury cars, SUVs and crossovers that put in a lot of miles on long trips.
  • Winter tires: Modern winter tires offer handling, noise levels and ride quality that rival the best all-season tires, but with a more aggressive tread pattern that bites into slush and snow and a tread compound that stays supple at sub-freezing temperatures for traction. Just remember that winter tires will wear quickly in warmer weather and shouldn’t be used when temperatures are above about 45 degrees F.
  • Performance tires: Performance and ultra-high-performance tires are engineered with a tread pattern that enhances steering response and cornering ability, and a rubber compound that’s “stickier” for better adhesion to the road.

Tire Wear Warning Signs

Tires wear very gradually, of course, and it can be way too easy to just take them for granted. Just be mindful of the fact that your safety is literally riding on your tires and they are your connection to the road when it comes to braking, cornering, wet-weather traction and long drives on the Interstate. Here are some things to watch for:

  • Reduced traction when braking or cornering
  • Tendency to hydroplane on wet pavement
  • Rougher or noisier ride
  • Noticeable tread loss; uneven tread wear toward the inside or outside edge of a tire can point to an alignment problem

Tire Service FAQs

What causes tire wear?

Tires wear out like any other part on a vehicle, although today’s premium tires are designed for much longer service. Tires can wear prematurely due to overinflation, underinflation, poor wheel alignment, lack of maintenance or bad driving habits.

How often should tires be rotated?

A good rule of thumb is every 5,000 to 8,000 miles, or at your scheduled oil change. Remember that failure to rotate tires regularly can negate a tire warranty.

How long should tires last?

Even if tires aren’t at the end of their treadwear warranty phase, they should be replaced every five or six years.

Do tires affect fuel economy?

Yes, underinflated, worn or poorly aligned tires will have more rolling resistance, causing a drop in gas mileage.

How often should I check tire pressure?

Rubber is slightly porous and can let air molecules migrate through, causing a gradual loss in inflation pressure. You should check tire pressure at least once a month, and perhaps more often in cold weather.

Why is my tire maintenance alert on?

Your tire maintenance alert can be informing you of underinflated tires, exceeding your tire rotation interval or just from fluctuations in weather.

What is a wheel alignment?

A wheel alignment ensures that your wheels are within spec of the proper angles that they’re engineered for.

How can I tell if I need a wheel alignment?

If you notice unusual, uneven wear on your front tires, a persistent pull to one side on straight, flat pavement or if the steering wheel doesn’t return to center readily after turning a corner, you should set up an appointment right away to have your alignment checked.
