Rotate & Balance
A rotate and balance should be performed every 10,000
Regular tyre rotations are recommended to maximise tyre life. Most vehicle
manufacturers recommend tyre rotations in the vehicle owner’s handbook and / or as part of regular service.
Unbalanced wheels cause annoying steering wheel vibrations and increased fuel
balance is essential for safe driving. Only perfectly balanced wheels will give you the assurance that you can keep
control of your vehicle even when things get critical. Improperly balanced wheels reduce road holding ability and
also increase wear of shock absorbers, struts, suspension and chassis components.
Tyre rotations are also an opportunity for us to adjust tyre
inflation pressures, as well as inspect the tyres for irregular wear that may indicate that wheel alignment needs
adjustment and / or suspension components need careful inspection for wear.
Rotations are recommended for non-directional and asymmetric tyres,
as shown below. This is our preferred method of rotation due to the fact that all tyres end up in every position on
the vehicle depending on tyre longevity.
Tyres with directional tread patterns should be rotated from the
front to the rear axle only. Rotating directional tyres diagonally will reverse the direction of rotation, which
should be avoided. Reversing the direction of rotation of directional tyres reduces the tyre’s resistance to
