Part three of a series on the importance of auto repair explores your car’s brakes and tires.
How Often Should I Rotate My Tires?
We’re often asked “how often should I rotate my tires?” How often you should rotate your tires depends on your car, the amount of use you put it through, etc. A good benchmark however, is to rotate your tires every 5,000 to 10,000 miles. Why do you want to rotate them? Well, it helps to keep the wear on your tires even. Otherwise, if you don’t rotate your tires, one or two tires will wear out quicker than the others will.
If you don’t have the expertise or the tools to rotate your tires, then your best bet is to get your car into an auto repair shop in Mesa. Considering that they have power tools, a lot of times, the wait will be mere minutes as opposed to an hour plus long process if you try to do it. However, while good tread on your tires and tires in good shape are both important, what about stopping your car?
Brake Repair and When You Should Do It
Brake repair is even more important than tire repair is. After all if you aren’t able to stop your car, it can literally be fatal. You want to have your brakes looked at every 25,000 miles as a rule. If your brakes start to make a noise, get your car into a shop immediately. You don’t want to mess up your brakes. If you scar the rotors what would have been an $80 brake job can suddenly become $400 or more.
So as you see, your car is an investment. Like us, your car benefits from checkups. So look over your owner’s manual, and be a bit proactive. Get your car in for regular maintenance. That way fixing your car will be at most a minor auto repair, not a major one.
