Not all tire wear is caused by a defect in the tires themselves. There are several other components of the vehicle that, when faulty, can result in premature tire damage. In particular, bad wheel alignment can result in uneven wear on your tires. In its most basic form, having correct wheel alignment means that all the wheels are pointing in exactly the same direction. Even if they’re off by a little, your car’s handling will suffer and you’ll begin to see more wear in your tires and suspension than you should.
At Auto Care Experts, we recommend that you rotate your tires every 6,000 for maximum performance, if not otherwise specified by the manufacturer. Tire rotations can help distribute tread wear evenly and can ultimately prolong the road life of your tires. If you notice uneven wear in your tread, bring them in for a tire rotation.
