As you drive, your tires wear down — but they do not do so at an even rate. In general, the tires on the front of your VW tend to wear down faster than those on the rear. This is for several reasons, including the engine being located in the front and the front tires found on the steering axle. These things both put extra strain on tires. There can even be an imbalance between the right and left sides when it comes to tire wear. And if you drive a front-wheel-drive vehicle, the front tires’ location on the drive axle can make it wear down even sooner.
When you come to LaFontaine Volkswagen of Livonia for tire rotation, our technicians will remove all four wheels and rotate their position, moving the front wheels to the rear and the rear wheels to the front. Depending on certain factors, they may switch the left wheels to the right side and vice versa.
At LaFontaine Volkswagen of Livonia, we recommend having tire rotation service performed at least once a year or every 10,000 miles — whichever comes first. To make it easier to remember and schedule, many people pair tire rotation with oil change service.
