TSM TIPS – TYRE ROTATION
Tyre rotation is done to achieve even tread wear and long tread life. Rotation is necessary because of the uneven wear of each wheel on the vehicle. For example, front wheel drive vehicles place braking, steering and driving forces on the front axle tyres. Rear axle tyres only receive braking forces resulting in a much faster wear rate for the front axle tyres. Hence, tyre rotation becomes very important for optimum tyre life.
