Tires & Wheels: Tire Rotation


set of four tires

Description: Tire rotation refers to the regular practice of switching the position of each tire on the car.


Purpose: Tire rotation helps to equalize tread wear and is critical to gain the maximum life from your tire investment.


Maintenance Tips/Suggestions: Refer to your owner's manual for the recommended rotation interval and pattern; generally a rotation interval of 6,000 miles is recommended. The rotation pattern varies with different makes and models, which shows the tire locations during rotation. Some vehicles have different size tires on the front and back or directional tires. This limits the locations that a tire may take on the vehicle. When in doubt, check the owner's manual or consult a professional technician at Hoffman Auto Repair for guidance. Tire rotation time also offers a good opportunity to have the tires and wheels balanced. It's another step you can take to maximize your tire investment.



Troubleshooting Tires

Keep an eye out for these common signs that you may need new tires or service. If your vehicle exhibits any of these symptoms, take it to Hoffman Auto Repair.

  • When driving, your car pulls to one side or the other.

  • You notice rhythmic vibrations.

  • Your tires are wearing unevenly.

  • Your tires won't maintain proper air pressure.

  • Shakes at Highway Speed

  • Low speed wobble in wheel




How to read the model and size on a car tire



What do those numbers on your tires represent?


The numbers in the tire size refer to its width, aspect ratio, and wheel diameter. "185/75R14" means the tire is 185 mm wide, has an aspect ratio (that is, the width divided by the height) of 75%, and fits on a 14" rim.

"R" means radial tire. They're all radials nowadays. Speed ratings are usually inserted before the "R." The most common speed ratings are HR (good for 130mph), VR (149 mph), and ZR (more than 149 mph).
