You may be wondering, is rotating car tyres necessary? Yes, it is. There are two main reasons why tyre rotations are important. Firstly, tyre rotation helps keep your car safer. This is because your front and rear tyres have different roles and operate under different tyre pressures, which means they wear at different rates. Frequently rotating car tyres will ensure the tread wears more evenly and improves grip, helping you safely maintain traction in slippery conditions. Secondly, the more even wear on the tread from regular car tyre rotations will extend the tyres’ life, saving you money.
Here at Jim’s Mobile Tyres we normally recommend to our customers that you rotate your car tyres around every 10,000 km. However, the recommended frequency of car tyre rotations is dependent on your individual driving circumstances and, if you see uneven wear patterns, often drive long journeys at high speeds, and/or carry large loads, you should think about more regular car tyre rotations. Other signs that your vehicle needs a tyre rotation are a vibrating steering wheel or noisy tyres – even when the road is smooth. We usually recommend a wheel balance to our customers when they’re conducting their tyre rotations.

When you have a spare tyre, it’s better to rotate it regularly. This helps spread the wear out over 5 tyres instead of 4, and also help use your spare tyre which may deteriorate if it‘s left in your boot.
Tyres play an important role in our cars. They help us get around safely and comfortably. You should check your tyres regularly because if they’re damaged or worn out, they could affect your vehicle’s handling and braking ability.
Some experts believe that tyres should be changed every five years, but you can still use them if they’re in good condition. Hot weather reduces the life of tyres, even when they aren’t being used.
Never exceed the load-carrying limits. You can find this on the sidewall of the tyres or the maximum vehicle axle load limit and shown on the vehicle tyre placard, whichever is less. Overloading can generate excessive heat in the tyre which may cause failure.
