How should I rotate my tires?
Tires should be rotated in a "modified X" pattern, meaning only the tires being moved to the drive axle are crossed to the opposite side of the vehicle. The remaining two tires are moved from the drive axle to the free rolling axle, remaining on the same side of the vehicle. This method of rotation helps promote a more even and uniform tread wear pattern for all four tires. The only exception to this would be the use of "directional" tread design tires. These tires would remain on the same side of the vehicle and be rotated straightforward and straight back.

If you have a full size spare that is the same size and type of tire it must be rotated into service during normal tire rotation intervals. The full size spare tire goes on the right rear wheel position. The tire that was to be rotated to the right rear position will be stored in the spare tire location until the next rotation.

For additional information please refer to the vehicle owner's manual for specific recommended patterns and intervals for your tire rotation.

How often should I rotate my tires?
We recommend rotating your tires every 6,000 to 8,000 miles, or sooner if uneven treadwear begins to appear.

Where do I find the proper inflation for my tires?
The vehicle manufacturer specifies the proper inflation pressure for your original equipment tires. The proper inflation for your vehicles tires can be found in several places:
  • Located in your vehicle's owner manual.
  • Listed on the inside of your glove box or center armrest compartment.
  • The placard on the edge of the driver's or front passenger's door or frame.
  • On the vehicle's fuel door.
Some vehicles may have LT-metric (size prefix for light truck tires) size tires installed, although the vehicle calls for P-metric (size prefix for passenger tires). In this case contact the vehicle or tire manufacture for the proper inflation pressure for the LT-metric tires.

Remember: Proper inflation is the most important element of tire care. Under inflation is the #1 cause of tire failure.

How often should I check my tire inflation pressure?
Check the pressure in your tires at least monthly and before long trips when your tires are cool (after the vehicle has been stopped 3 hours and then driven less than one mile). Adjust inflation pressure to the vehicle manufacturer's specified pressure while tires are cold. Never "bleed" or reduce air pressure when tires are hot. It is normal for inflation pressure to build up in your tires as a result of driving. Use an accurate tire gauge to check pressure and maintain it at the level recommended by the vehicle manufacturer. Don't forget to gauge inflation pressure in your standard size or temporary spare tire (your temporary spare requires a higher inflation pressure).

Remember: Under inflation is the most common cause of sudden air loss or sudden failures in any kind of tire.

Do my driving habits affect the life of my tires?
Yes they do. Keep your tires in good condition longer by observing the following simple tips:
  1. Obey the posted speed limits. Speeding generates excessive heat and increases the rate of tire wear.
  2. Avoid sudden starts and stops.
  3. When possible avoid driving over potholes, curbs and driving on the edge of the pavement.
  4. Do not load your vehicle with more weight than intended by the manufacturer.
Refer to the owner's manual to determine your vehicle's maximum loaded weight.

How should I check my tires for wear problems?
There are often early warning signs of wear problems. Watch for these early warning signs and you can prevent many wear problems that shorten tire life by thousands of miles. Here are some of the most common signs to look for:
  • High and low areas or unusually smooth areas.
  • Outer edge or both outer edges wearing faster than the center of the tire.
  • Center of the tread wearing faster than the outer edges.
  • Signs of feathering.
Inspect your tires frequently, look for any stones, pieces of glass, metal or other foreign objects that may wedge in the tread, they may eventually cause air loss.
