Honda Tire Rotation in North Hollywood

Winter tire wheels using 4WD

 

Scheduling regular Honda tire rotation in North Hollywood is a key part of keeping your vehicle running just as it did when you first drove off the lot, and it’s a task our service center should take care of as part of your manufacturer recommended maintenance schedule. In fact, you’ll usually have your tires rotated whenever you get your oil changed.

But while most drivers understand why oil changes are important, far fewer know why it’s necessary to rotate the tires or even what a tire rotation involves. With that in mind, simply read on for answers to the following common questions:

  • What is Tire Rotation?
  • Why is Tire Rotation Important?
  • How Can You Tell Tire Rotation is Needed?

 

What is Tire Rotation?

As you probably already know, tires wear down over time until the tread isn’t deep enough to firmly grip the road. What you might not know is that even a quick journey around Los Angeles places more pressure on some tires than others, and that can mean some wear down faster than others. This problem is known as ‘uneven wear’.

Tire rotation simply involves changing the position of each tire to compensate for uneven wear. As a general rule, each Honda tire rotation involves:

  • Moving the tires at the front to the back.
  • Moving the tires at the back to the front.
  • Moving the tires on the left to the right.
  • Moving the tires on the right to the left.

 

Why is Tire Rotation Important?

Uneven tire wear isn’t a problem you should take likely. Just a few risks associated with delaying or skipping regular tire rotations include:

  • Flats and Blowouts
  • Poor Control Due to Improper Traction
  • Poor Fuel Efficiency
  • More Regular Tire Replacements

 

How Can You Tell Tire Rotation is Needed?

Luckily enough, there are several clear signs you can watch out for if you’re worried about uneven tire wear, including:

  • Vibrations even over smooth and even terrain
  • Air pressure loss in one tire, but not the others
  • More frequent gas station stops

You can also take a close look at each wheel to check if any one tire seems visibly more worn than others.
