When Should I Rotate My Tires?

When Should I Rotate My Tires?

With all the chores that are required to keep our lives on track, it’s only understandable that some tasks fall through the crack. This is especially true when it comes to automotive care. One operation that many individuals fail to keep up with is tire rotations. If you think it’s been a while since you last had this maintenance, swing into the Service Department at Pohanka Honda.

Benefits of Staying Consistent

If you’re wondering what makes tire rotations a good idea, we’d point to the fact that they will save you money in the long run. As you drive, your car’s tread will erode at different rates depending on their position. Typically, your set in the front will be the first to become unusable since they have to handle the weight of the engine. When they finally run their course, you’ll have to switch out all four tires anyway even if the back ones still have some life left. Fortunately, tire rotations help distribute the wear and tear evenly, so you’ll get to use your set of wheels much longer before having to get new ones.

Timeline and Warning Signs

Just like oil changes, tire rotations are a task you have to handle quite frequently. In fact, our technicians recommend switching things around every 6,000 to 8,000 miles or every six months. That being said, if you’re unsure when the last time was that you had this maintenance, you can keep an eye out for a few indicators that will let you know it’s time to visit our Service Department. First off, if you can visibly see that one set of tires is in worse condition than the other set, it might be a good idea to move them around. On top of that, you might feel more vibration in your cabin if you haven’t remained consistent with this procedure.

Pay Us a Visit!

We’re ready to get to work on your vehicle as soon as you are, so don’t put off this operation if you think it’s about time. If you want to bundle your tire rotation with more maintenance tasks in order to save you time in the future, be sure to let us know. We’d be happy to handle it all for you! You can even save your hard-earned cash by taking advantage of many of the coupons located below the Specials tab of our website. Plus, we’re open seven days of the week, so you’ll easily be able to find a time that works for you.

The next time someone asks, “When should I rotate my tires?” you’ll have an answer. Until then, consider stopping by Pohanka Honda for all your automotive needs.

Initially , I was livid when coming to get my vehicle serviced to get my vehicle serviced for a new rim & tire . I got the most terrible customer service from the representative Don , he had no interest in helping me and was not knowledgable about transportation for me to get to the rental company nearby, ( called myself got in touch within seconds) unclear communication between him and the parts service manager. I was completely disgruntled until returning the following day with my father, we were fortunate to get to interact with Horace who literally saved the day and wasn't afraid to get his hands dirty and actually observed what was going on with my vehicle , and made me aware that another tire was going ball (no he didn't up sell me ,because I already knew I needed them replaced being that my mechanic let me know the last time I went for routine maintenance) I literally just wanted to work with someone with simple emotional intelligence & that could assist me swiftly. Horace was the guy. He kept in contact with me the entire time my vehicle was being serviced and kept me posted with any updates up until my car was ready. I'm truly satisfied & happy my warranty covered one of my tires and I was able to replace the other, at little to no cost.

My overall experience was very good. Gabrielle Willis was our sales consultant, we started with email communication, and she impressed me as being very friendly, always responsive and eager to work things out, and we reached an initial agreement quickly via email. Gabby picked me up at the metro station, and she was very pleasant to interact with. In addition, Gabbi was very patient, knowledgeable and informative, and she explained things in detail, answered all of my questions. Gabbi followed up afterwards with an email to make sure that I was satisfied, and to see if I had any additional questions. Gabbi did an excellent job with her customers, and I would recommend her to anyone.

I went to this dealership 22Sept2019 to get 4-wheel alignment for our car. As soon as I got there, Ms. Sarah Carpenter, our service advisor came and approached us with cordiality. When it comes to her job, I would describe her as hospitable and professional.
