Here at Graham Cadillac, we offer a range of services to help keep your Cadillac or Chevrolet going on the road for years to come. When it comes to your tires, performing regular tire rotations is just one part of the routine maintenance that your vehicle needs.

 

Why is Tire Rotation Important?

Tire rotation plays a major role in ensuring your vehicle runs smoothly in Mansfield, OH. Frequent tire rotation ensures even wear on all tires, increasing their thread life. The front tires go through most torque and friction, which is required for accelerating and turning, thus leading to excess wear of the front tires. Another reason to carry out tire rotation is to keep the tread depth on your tires even, and it can be helpful to maintain handling and traction across all four tires. It will also improve braking performance and cornering.

Tire Rotation Patterns

At Graham Cadillac, we use certain patterns to rotate your tires. The patterns depend on various factors, including the type of tire you are using, whether your vehicle is non-directional or directional, whether your vehicle is rear, front, or all-wheel-drive, whether your tires are the same size or not, and whether you have a full-size spare.

The following are the rotation patterns for tires with uniform size and non-directional.

Rearward Cross Pattern

The rearward cross is the right pattern if you have a four-wheel or rear-wheel-drive vehicle. The pattern involves moving the rear tires to the front axle and maintaining the same side of the car, whereas the front tires are switched to opposite sides of the rear axle.

X-Pattern

The X-Pattern is for front-wheel-drive vehicles like sedans and light-duty trucks. All tires are switched diagonally in this rotation pattern, moving from one axle to the opposite. They are also repositioned from one side to another.

Forward Cross Pattern

It is also a well-known pattern for the front-wheel-drive models. The pattern will have the rear tires moved up diagonally to the other side of the front axle while the front tires are switched directly to the back.

Non-directional and uniform-sized tires with a full-size spare tire will undergo the forward cross and rearward pattern, but different since it involves a spare tire. It will also depend on the drive train. For vehicles with rear or four-wheel-drive, the tires will be switched diagonally to the left side at the rear axle, with the left front tire now becoming the spare tire. The pattern used is rearward. For the front-wheel-drive cars, the forward pattern is used, and it involves the spare tire taking a position on the right side of the rear axle. The front left tire takes the same position at the back.

The side-to-side and front-to-back patterns are used for directional tires and high performance. The front-to-back pattern is for the directional tires, and it moves all tires from one axle to the other axle but on the same side. The side-to-side pattern makes the tires remain on the same axle and switch with the same partner.

Benefits of Tire Rotation Services

Rotating your tires can help them wear more evenly and extend the life of your tires. Uneven tires can vibrate and make noises while driving and decrease the overall fuel efficiency of your vehicle.

At Graham Cadillac, our team of factory-certified technicians also inspect the tires to ensure they're working properly and ensure that they have the right amount of air pressure.

How Often to Rotate Tires

Frequency can vary depending on what type of vehicle you drive around Mansfield, OH. Front-wheel drive models will need more frequent tire rotations than all-wheel drive vehicles. A good recommendation is to rotate the tires every 5,000 miles. The best way to find out is to check the owner's manual of your Cadillac or Chevy vehicle. Our team is also happy to assist you with recommendations on scheduling your next tire rotation. We can help determine if your vehicle is overdue for a tire rotation and get it in to help get your vehicle back in shape.

Explore the Tire Rotation Process

Once we get your vehicle in, our technicians will remove the wheels and inspect each of the tires for signs of wear. We also inspect the brakes, steering, and suspension components to help make sure everything is working properly. We check the air pressure and compare it to the specifications of the tires and adjust them accordingly. If the wheels need to get realigned, we can take care of that as well, and we'll remount the tires to help them wear more evenly.
