If you want to avoid large and costly repairs to the most integral parts of your vehicle like the engine and transmission, you need to conduct regular tune-ups and maintenance. While it can be a hassle, routine car care and upkeep will ultimately save you lots of time and money.

Tire Rotations and Tune UpOne of these commonly overlooked maintenance necessities is tire rotation. To get the full expected lifespan out of your vehicle’s tires and maintain a smooth ride, the tires must be rotated every 3,000 to 5,000 miles and balanced at every other rotation appointment to ensure even wear. Swing by your trusted local technician at Jay’s Garage today to have your tires rotated and your car tuned-up for an affordable price.

The Tire Rotation Process

The process of tire rotation takes into account how the tires are wearing in their current placement on the car. Rotating the front tires to the back of the car and the rear tires to the front of the car is effective in promoting a more even wear. The front and rear of a vehicle sits at differing angles, so rotating the tires exposes other sections of the tire tread to be worn.

If you do not adhere to a routine tire rotation schedule or there are underlying issues with the wheels or brakes, you may notice signs that your tires are due for an inspection and servicing by the ASE-certified automotive technicians of Jay’s Garage in Portland, OR.
