Why Wheel Balancing and Tire Rotation Save You Money On Tires

Minneapolis drivers want their tires to last as long as possible. Two ways to extend tire life are wheel balancing and tire rotation.

When wheels are out of balance, they wobble and vibrate. That makes the tires wear in a cupping pattern. If a front wheel is out of balance you’ll feel it in the steering wheel. If it’s a rear wheel you’ll feel it through your seat. To fix this, your service specialist at Wagamon Brothers puts weights on your wheels to balance them out.

That brings us to tire rotation. The front tires on a sedan wear out faster than the rear tires. As they push through turns from Minneapolis to Blane, the shoulders of the front tires wear down. So rotating front and rear tires allows them to all wear at about the same rate over the life of the tire.

Proper tire inflation will also help Minneapolis folks’ tires last longer. Under-inflated tires wear more on the shoulder and may even overheat. This could cause tire damage or a blow out. Over-inflated tires wear too fast in the middle.

Four wheel drive trucks and SUV’s tend to wear their tires more unevenly so rotation is even more essential with them. Give Wagamon Brothers a call to get our recommendation for your sedan.

See your owner’s manual or ask your tech at Wagamon Brothers for your recommended tire rotation schedule. It’s usually every 5,000 to 8,000 miles.

Tires are expensive and they are one of the most vital safety components on your vehicle. Take care of them and they’ll take care of you.
