Tire Rotation: Depending on the position of your tires on your vehicle, they often wear at different rates. However, if you change the position of the tire on your vehicle, you can take advantage of the different wearing characteristics to increase the longevity of your tire. Tire rotation is the act of switching the positions of your tires to increase tire life. Only an experienced mechanic who understands the wear characteristics of a vehicle should perform this task. Otherwise, your tires may wear unevenly, which could lead to a blowout.
