Make sure you rotate your tires at recommended intervals. This is important as tires wear out at different rates, each depending on the different amount of weight it supports. By rotating your tires, this helps extends the life and allows for more uniform tire wear.
It's important to rotate your tires according to the correct rotation pattern. Front tires encounter different tasks than the rear tires. And a front-wheel-drive car's tires perform different tasks than those on a rear-wheel-drive car. For clarification, you can always check your owner's manual or your local mechanic to ensure the right rotation pattern for your vehicle.
Wheel, Rust or Dirt
Be sure to remove any rust or dirt from places where the wheel attaches to the vehicle, as it may loosen wheel nuts over time. While cleaning your car, use a scraper or wire brush later to remove all rust or dirt.
Wheel Alignment & Tire Balance
Make sure you periodically check your car for its wheel alignment and tire balance. If you notice unusual tire wear or that your vehicle "sways" one way or the other, the alignment may need to be reset. If you notice your vehicle vibrating on a smooth road, your wheels may be out of balance. Nothing a stop at the workshop can’t fix!
