The Chevrolet certified technicians at Hendrick Chevrolet Hoover can help with the ongoing tire maintenance your vehicle requires. During a tire rotation the technicians will remove the tires from the back of the car and put them in the front, different patterns are used during the rotation depending on what drive (rear wheel drive or front wheel drive) the vehicle is. The average driver should get their tires rotated every 3,000 to 5,000 miles, also if the vehicle has developed a vibration, this is a good time to get the tires rebalanced. Tires will eventually wear out just from the friction on the road from every day driving. Accelerated or uneven wear can be caused by under inflation, or bad wheel alignment. A sign that the tires are out of alignment is if there is increased wear on the outside or inside of the tire. Hendrick Chevrolet Hoover gives alignment checks free of charge, and competitive prices on wheel alignment if it is needed. Check the internal air pressure of the tires every month to avoid additional wear caused by under inflation. Regular tire rotations will make the tires wear more evenly, in turn making the tires last longer. Many tire warranties require tire rotations to keep the warranty valid. When the tread of the tire is completely worn away, or bald, it should be replaced as soon as possible. It is a good goal to purchase all four tires at the same time to maintain the original handling of the vehicle, hence the importance of tire maintenance.
