Why Are Tire Rotations Important?

Subaru vehicles are known to be reliable, hard-working vehicles that last for many years. They're also great in all types of conditions, as all of the Subaru models that we sell at Rogers Subaru come with symmetrical all-wheel drive, except for the Subaru BRZ. While these are nice advantages, the fact remains that a vehicle is only as safe as the wheels that it's driving on. At our dealership, we recommend that our customers in Lewiston, ID get their tires rotated regularly. This may be every 5,000 to 7,000 miles, but it could depend on the type of driving you do. If you have any questions, our technicians would be happy to help you.

Rotating your tires ensures that the tires all wear evenly. As you drive around Lewiston, perhaps the inside of your front tires may be doing more work than the other sections. Without a tire rotation, that particular surface will wear down before the others, resulting in poor performance or even a sudden breakdown. While Subaru vehicles are AWD, they often work in FWD modes, meaning that those front tires are expected to get worn down more rapidly.

When you move the tires to different positions in your vehicle, it gives them a chance to even themselves out. Each section of a tire, and each tire itself, will get a turn to bear a little more of the responsibility for maintaining traction with the road. Keeping tread wear consistent throughout the four tires helps Subaru models run more smoothly. Significant differences related to varying tread depth can make the drivetrain work extra hard.

By having this simple procedure done at regular intervals, you'll be helping your vehicle maintain its fuel efficiency and increase its longevity. Subaru vehicles are built to last, and rotating your tires can make sure they live up to their strong reputation.
