Learn More About Your Hyundai Tire Rotations And Wheel Alignments

Whether you're cruising around Fall River in your new Hyundai or you're headed off on an adventure in New Bedford, Warwick, RI, or beyond, you'll want to make sure that your tires are well taken care of and ready to move. The tires on your Hyundai car or SUV are what keeps you connected to the road and will require routine maintenance over time. Besides inspecting your tires on a regular basis, you should also have your tires rotated and wheels aligned to keep your tires in excellent health.

What Is A Tire Rotation?

To put it simply, a tire rotation is the act of switching each tire to a different position. Not all four tires wear at the same rate, with each tire's rate of wear depending on what type of roads you drive on, how you drive, and where you drive. In order to keep all four tires wearing evenly, you'll want to have them rotated frequently.

When Do My Tires Need To Be Rotated?

Most vehicles have a recommended tire rotation timeline of 5,000 miles or at every oil change. Of course, not every vehicle is the same, so you should check your car's owner's manual to be sure. Also, if you have your tires changed every winter and summer, you won't need a tire rotation as often.

What Are The Benefits Of A Tire Rotation?

There are many benefits that a tire rotation provides. The top three reasons include:

  • Maximizing the Tire's Life - The more a tire wears, the sooner it will have to be replaced. If one tire wears more quickly than the others, then you will need to replace all four tires more often than you'd like. Buying a new set of tires is expensive, and you won't want to do it more than you should.
  • Less Stress on the Drivetrain - Especially important if your car has an all-wheel drive system, uneven wear can cause your car to be unbalanced, which puts extra stress on your drivetrain. This added stress will cause more damage to the drive components, which cost a lot more to replace.
  • Uniform Tire Tread - When your tire wears, it will cause the tread to become lower. If one tire is lower than the others, it will cause your entire car to become unbalanced, which will lead to worse traction, handling, and performance.

What Is A Wheel Alignment?

Wheel alignments are when the wheels are adjusted to be the right angle to the road and the other tires. This helps keep your car from veering to the right or left when it should be going straight and keeps your vehicle cruising around Pawtucket, RI, with ease.

When Does My Car Need An Alignment?

Have you hit a large pothole, and now your Hyundai Elantra isn't driving right? Did you run over the curb and mess something up? Have you recently had your tires changed or replaced? These are all instances when a wheel alignment is necessary. If you leave your car unaligned, it will lead to larger issues, more wear, and excess damage to your drive components.
