The rotation of tyres can be very beneficial for your consumers in a number of ways. Rotating the vehicles tyres at recommended times can preserve tyre wear, enhance balance handling and traction. It can even provide performance advantage. When should the tyres be rotated? Always recommend to your consumer that they have their tyres rotated every 5000 to 8000 kilometers, even if there is no sign of uneven wears.
Explain to your consumers that rotation of the tyres helps to even out tyre wear by allowing each tyre to operate in a number of different wheel positions. Remember, tyre rotation cannot correct wear problems due to worn mechanical parts or incorrect inflation pressures.
While every vehicle is equipped with four tyres, it is usually the tyres on the front that need to perform different functions than the rear tyres. The functions encountered on a front wheel drive vehicle are considerably different than those of a rear wheel drive vehicle. Tyre wear on a performance vehicle will usually be more servere than those on the family sedan. Each wheel position can create different wear rates and different types of tyre wear.
Always stress the advantage of rotating all four tyres because in the long term your consumer will obtain better cost per kilometre. The following diagrams provide suggestions for four and five tyre rotations for radial tyres.
