Your Chevrolet’s tires are a big investment, so you’ll want them to last as long as possible. When you visit Con Paulos Chevrolet for tire rotation service in Burley, your car’s tires will last longer and wear evenly. Your vehicle will handle better, and you’ll enjoy the smooth ride. Keeping the tires rotated can even prevent a flat or a blowout.
A good rule of thumb is to rotate your Chevy’s tires every 5,000 to 7,000 miles. Your car’s owner’s manual will contain the manufacturer’s recommended schedule for bringing your vehicle in for tire rotation in Burley. It will also outline the best tire rotation pattern for your car. The rotation pattern depends on which vehicle you drive, whether it’s a front- or rear-wheel-drive model, and the type of tires the car is riding on. If you’re unable to locate your owner’s manual, feel free to call the Con Paulos Chevrolet Service Department. We’re happy to help.
Your car’s front and rear tires have different functions, and the tires on front- and rear-wheel-drive vehicles work differently. If you drive a front-wheel-drive vehicle and don’t rotate the tires, the front tires will wear out before the rear tires, resulting in loss of control when driving on wet, icy or slippery roads.
When you rotate your Chevy’s tires at the Con Paulos Chevrolet Service Center, it will prevent cupping, a condition that produces cabin noise and vibration. Keep in mind that some manufacturers stipulate that failure to rotate your car’s tires regularly will void the warranty.
Tire Rotation Service near Burley
There are three rotation patterns commonly used: forward cross, rearward cross and x-pattern:
Forward Cross: The forward cross pattern is used on vehicles with front-wheel drive. The service technician will switch the front set of tires with the rear set. The new front tires switch sides.
Rearward Cross: The rearward cross pattern is used on vehicles with rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive. The front and rear tires switch places, and the new rear tires switch sides.
X-Pattern: The x-pattern is for vehicles with front-wheel drive. The front and rear tires switch places, and both sets of tires switch sides.
There are two more patterns used for high-performance tires: front-to-back and side-to-side.
Front-to-Back: The front-to-back pattern is used with directional tires. The front and rear tires are switched, but both sets stay on the same side.
Side-to-Side: The side-to-side pattern is used with non-directional tires that aren’t the same size. The front tires switch sides, and the rear tires switch sides.
While it’s possible to rotate your car’s tires yourself, we don’t recommend it. Instead, bring your vehicle to the Con Paulos Chevrolet Service Center for expert tire rotation service. We’ll rotate the tires, check them for signs of wear, and reset the tire-pressure monitors.
