Why Are Tire Rotations Necessary? | Carter Subaru Service FAQs

Answers to your service questions

When you hear about "rotating your tires," do you imagine a mechanic pointlessly spinning the wheels as your car sits on the lift? Well, you're definitely not alone - but, of course, that's not what a tire rotation is. Since each wheel experiences unique driving stresses, your tires will wear down in different zones depending on which wheel they're mounted on. Rotating your tires means switching the location of each tire so that they wear down evenly, extending their life. Let us rotate your tires at the Carter Subaru Service Center and extend their life as long as possible!

How Often do I Need to Rotate my Tires?

For example, according to the owner's manual, one should rotate the tires on the 2011 Subaru Legacy every 7,500 miles. Since different cars wear down their tires in different ways based on weight distribution and drivetrain type, our Subaru maintenance experts know exactly which wheel to move each tire to in order to maximize their life on your specific vehicle. Tires that are worn down can be extremely dangerous and prone to blowout. Failure to rotate your tires can cause them to wear to that point much faster than intended. Stay safe and keep that new tire money in your pocket for another season - have your tires regularly rotated at Carter Subaru Ballard!
