Tires are installed in a single wheel location but steering pressure and handling forces are different across the vehicle. This difference will cause your tires’ tread to wear unevenly over time. Tire Rotation adjusts for this reality by moving each tire to a new location so that the tread wears evenly over the life of your set of tires. The Tire Rotation strategy is formulated by a GM-certified technician after they evaluate every tire’s tread pattern. The main benefits of regular Tire Rotation Service are to maximize tire life, create a smooth ride, and reduce tire replacement costs.
What happens during a Four-Wheel Balance & Tire Rotation?
Every Four-Wheel Balance & Tire Rotation at Feldman Chevrolet of Novi begins with a GM-certified service technician and a certified Chevrolet service protocol. A GM-certified service technician will first inspect all of your tires to check tread depth, signs of wear and tear that are a safety concern, and evaluate tire tread wear patterns to formulate the optimum Tire Rotation Strategy. Every tire will then be placed on a computerized wheel balancer that will precisely analyze tire balance to determine any areas that require a wheel weight. The computerized tire balancer will tell the GM-certified technician exactly where to place a small wheel weight. Once each tire is in perfect balance, the expert technician will inspect the vital brake system components to identify any parts with wear and tear that might be a problem. Every customer that schedules a Four-Wheel Balance & Tire Rotation will leave the service center knowing that their wheels are in perfect balance and tires are in the best wheel location for maximum life.
