How do I know when its time to rotate the tires on my Acura?

At Tim Smith Acura, we're big believers in the saying, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." In fact, we think this old adage is especially true when it comes to your Acura car's tires. You may not think about it much, but regularly rotation your vehicle's tires goes a long way to extending their usable lifespan. And if you can't remember the last time you had your tires rotated, it may just be a smart bet to plan a trip to our Fort Walton Beach Acura service center at your earliest convenience.

Now, you may be wondering, "Why do I even need to rotate the tires on my Acura?" Well, due to how weight is distributed on most Acura cars, the front tires often experience significantly more stress and wear than the rear tires. This is because the engine is positioned above the front tires, so they bear more of a burden, and often wear down their tread at a more precipitous rate than the rear tires.

Now, rotating tires and preventing this wear is something we've noticed a lot of drivers overlook, as it's usually not a noticeable issue until the wear has become a severe issue. Worn tires are supremely unsafe, more prone to punctures and blowouts, and often struggle to gain traction on slippery surfaces. So, if you want to prevent this sort of wear, it's a good idea to have your Acura car's tires rotated roughly every 7,500 miles or so.

Luckily, if you're due for an Acura tire rotation, you can take advantage of our Acura Accelerated Service here at Tim Smith Acura. With quality service from certified Acura technicians guaranteed in an hour or less, we can get your Acura car's tires rotated in no time at all, and lounge in our comfortably appointed client lounge enjoying our free Wi-Fi and complimentary refreshments while our we get to work. So, feel free to swing by our service center n Miracle Strip Parkway in Fort Walton Beach to have your tires rotated at your earliest convenience.
