Tire rotation is the removal and relocation of each tire on your vehicle. Each tire on your vehicle wears differently, depending on their position on your vehicle, your personal driving style, your vehicle's weight distribution, and performance characteristics. Front tires typically tend to wear more quickly than rear tires, because of steering/cornering forces and the difference in weight on the front tires. Drive tires tend to wear more quickly than non-drive tires. Rotating the position of your tires periodically promotes more even tread wear, and will help you get the most miles out of your tires, the best traction, and improved driving safety. During the service, we'll rotate your tires according to your owner's manual recommendations. Rotating tires is an important routine maintenance service for your vehicle, like oil changes.
Do your tires need to be rotated?
Grease Monkey™ recommends tire rotation in accordance with your owner's manual recommended service intervals. Your Grease Monkey™ technician will check your owner's manual and let you know the proper tire rotation service interval for your specific vehicle.

Proper wheel balance helps ensure a smooth ride, and minimizes tire wear. Out-of-balance wheels can cause vibration in your vehicle's ride, premature or irregular tire wear, and unnecessary wear on your vehicle's suspension. When driving with an out-of-balance wheel, the tire bounces down the road, rather than spinning smoothly. This can affect the speed and handling of your vehicle. The lightweight suspension systems of today's vehicles are more sensitive to imbalance than older cars. Your Grease Monkey™ technician will balance your tires to proper specifications.
