Tire rotation and balancing

To ensure that you get the most out of your investment, you have to stay up on your rotation and balancing, and keep your vehicle properly aligned. What do all of those terms mean though?

Rotation and Balancing defined:

Tire rotation: The practice of moving the wheels and tires from one position to another to ensure even tire wear. Most tire manufacturers recommend a rotation every 5,000 miles to extend tire life.

Tire balance: Describes the distribution of mass within an automobile tire or the entire wheel (including the rim). Tire balancing involves using hyper-sensitive computers to determine the perfect weight balance between your tire and wheel, then adding weights as needed for perfect rotation. Proper balancing extends tire life and gives you a smooth ride. We include lifetime wheel weights to make sure you’re always balanced.
