4 Practical Reasons Why You Should Rotate Your Tires Periodically

Tire rotation is a proven strategy to maximize the service lives of your tires and minimize their wear. It’s a procedure that involves switching the position of the tires between the front and rear.

Unfortunately, many vehicle owners can be very particular with their vehicle’s oil change schedule but completely ignore proper tire maintenance, including periodic tire rotation. To them, it’s just an unnecessary routine. They fail to appreciate the benefits of tire rotation.

If you haven’t yet tried tire rotation, Veteran Car Donations shares these practical reasons why you should do it:

  1. Your tires will have a longer lifespan.

Tires tend to wear unevenly due to various factors such as your driving habits, the terrain, and the prevailing atmospheric temperature. Uneven wear reduces the traction the tires need to stay in contact with the surface you’re driving on. Additionally, this also results in a shortened tire life. Tire rotation addresses all these concerns.

  1. You’ll have better fuel consumption.

Another benefit of tire rotation is improved fuel consumption. Tire rotation alleviates road friction and vehicle pull and increases stability and friction. As a result, your car’s engine will run smoothly and efficiently, decreasing the required fuel it takes to propel the vehicle. With uneven tires, your car’s engine has to work harder to maintain a good grip on the road.

  1. You’ll enjoy a quieter ride.

Proper tire rotation will result in less tire noise, which can be satisfying if you spend a lot of time on the road. A quieter ride means you’ll be able to hear music and conversations better while enjoying less vibration and bumps.

  1. You’ll have improved vehicle performance.

Tire grip depends on the tires’ treads. These treads wear down fast if the same part is always in contact with the road surface. When you rotate your tires, you change the part of the tread that comes in contact with the ground. This results in better vehicle performance and more secure cornering on bends, making your car much safer to drive.


Got an Old Car Clogging Your Garage? Considering Donating It to Us

If you’ve got an extra car that you no longer need and is only making your garage look messy, consider getting rid of it. Rather than selling or dropping it off at your local scrap yard, why not use it to support a worthy cause?

By donating any type of vehicle to us at Veteran Car Donations, you’ll help uplift the lives of the veterans residing in your area who are living miserable lives. They are our nation’s heroes who are homeless, unable to find decent jobs, and suffering from disabilities and serious illnesses, including mental disorders.

We’ll sell your donated auto through an auction and use the proceeds to support the life improvement programs of our veteran-focused charity partners. These IRS-approved 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations use the funding we give them to provide deserving veterans with housing and financial assistance, employment and livelihood opportunities, family support, free quality health care and medical treatment, psychotherapy services, scholarships, and other services meant to improve their living conditions.

Your participation in our vehicle donation program will enable you to enjoy a fast and free towing service anywhere in the United States. Your donation will also entitle you to claim the maximum tax deduction in the next tax season.

However, these material rewards may pale in comparison to the deep sense of personal satisfaction you’ll experience, knowing that you’ll be giving back to our heroes who put their lives on the line to defend our nation’s freedoms and ensure our security.

We accept nearly all types of vehicles whatever their years, makes, models, mileage, or conditions.
