The Facts on Rotating Your Trucks Tires

Tire rotation is an important maintenance routine that extends the life of your tires and ensures safe driving and handling of your vehicle.  Rotating your trucks tires also prevents the tires from developing pattern wear problems that result from turning in the same direction on the same wheel for thousands and thousands of miles.

Rotating your tires evens out the wear between the front and rear tires (usually front tires wear out faster), so that your tires don’t wear out prematurely. It is necessary to rotate your tires front-to-rear several times during their life cycle. This will help equalize tread wear and maximize the life of your tires.

Not all tires can be rotated from side to side and front to back. Make sure you follow the recommendations set by the manufacture of your tires. How often should you rotate your trucks tires? Well that all depends on your manufacture. Check back to your trucks owner’s manual for specific guidelines. Most manufacturers recommend rotating your tires every 5,000-10,000 miles.

When rotating your trucks tires you should also take this time to check the pressure of each tire, measure the tread and look for any unusual wear.

Is it Time for an Oil Change?

Changing your trucks oil every 2,500-3,000 miles is very crucial. Changing your oil on a routine basis will help to ensure the life of your truck for many years to come.

There are many benefits that are associated with changing your trucks oil including:

  • Increased gas mileage
  • Increased performance
  • Improved engine stability and life

Your trucks oil is packed with important protective additives that can be depleted after about 2,500-3,000 miles. Oil changes are the very best way to maintain adequate levels of protection for today’s high-performing engines, especially in sever driving conditions that include:

  • Rush Hour traffic commuting that requires frequent stops and idling
  • Dusty driving conditions
  • Heaving towing
  • High temperature operation
  • Long distance trips

Your trucks engine oil carry metals that has worn away, dirt and moisture from the air and combustion gasses that gets past the piston rings as well as sludge from chemical processes. These materials increase friction on your engines metal parts and seals and causes seals and gaskets to harden.

We see the difference in trucks daily that have been serviced regularly and those who have not.

In short changing your trucks oil and oil filter every 2,500-3,000 miles will save you a lot of money later on down the line in engine repairs.
