What does it mean to get my tires rotated?

Tire rotation is an important maintenance task that will help extend the life of your tires. Generally, you should get your tires rotated every six thousand miles. Many shops will rotate your tires as part of an oil change appointment. Tire rotation moves your tires from front to back and left to right. This ensures that each tire wears at a consistent rate and dangerous situations where one or two tires are over-worn are avoided.

What Are Those Numbers On My Tire?

Most tires have a term like ’89H’ after the tire size on the sidewall of the tire. This is called the Service Description. The ’89’ part of this term is the Load Index. Each number correlates to a maximum amount of weight a tire can support at a certain tire pressure. The higher the number, the more load the tire can support. You want to ensure that the tires you put on your vehicle match or exceed the Load Index requirements specified by the vehicle manufacturer.
