Are you looking for a few tips to help you stay on top of your vehicle’s routine maintenance needs? Pohanka Hyundai of Capitol Heights is here to assist! Today, we want to let you know about the timeline of tire rotations, so you know how often this vital service should be performed and what sort of signs to watch for that suggest your tires are getting worn out. Once you’re ready, come and see our Service Department.

Signs of Tire Wear

Before you enter your vehicle, you should always perform a quick visual assessment of your ride. When it comes to the tires, you’ll want to be on the lookout for several signs of wear and use. First, check that all four components are properly inflated, as over- or under-inflation can result in uneven degradation or an unbalanced drive. Next, you should be sure to inspect the tread depth of each wheel every now and then to ensure that everything is fairly even. A good way to test this is by sticking a penny headfirst into the tread. If Lincoln’s head is visible, then it’s time to come see us.

Importance of Tire Rotations

If you notice that your front tires seem to wear down faster than the ones in back, don’t be alarmed. Since this set endures the forces of turning, braking, and supporting the engine above, it’s quite common for the front tires to degrade at a quicker rate. This is why tire rotations are so important! By swapping the ones up front with the two in back, you’ll ensure that all four all wearing down as evenly as possible. Furthermore, if you have a vehicle with AWD or 4WD, then accounting for varied use is even more important. If left unchecked for too long, you might have to buy new tires two at a time instead of all four at once, which can be more expensive in the long run.

Tire Rotation Timeline

For maximum performance, we recommend rotating your tires as often as you change your car’s oil, or about every three to six months. Not only does this enable you to combine multiple service tasks in one appointment, but it also gives you the best chance of having your tires degrade at the most even rate possible. Furthermore, by giving our experts the chance to examine their condition at regular intervals, we’ll be able to assess when you’ll be due for a replacement set with greater accuracy. If we happen to notice any irregularities or inconsistencies, we can recommend a course of action before it’s too late to fix.

So, how often should I rotate my tires? Here at Pohanka Hyundai of Capitol Heights, we like to tell our valued clients to stop by our service bay every three to six months for this task. If you have any remaining questions, give us a call or submit your inquiry via the Ask a Tech form!

When my car was towed at pohanka hyandai, Robert was the first person I talked to. He told step by step on my car status. He was so professional and pleasant. He called me every day to let me know what the status on my vehicle was. He made the wait easy. I would recommend Robert the customer service of the month. Thank again for everything Robert.

The young Lady Kennedy greeted me as soon as I parked, she was not pushy at all she pointed me in the direction of what I was looking for and told me she'll be near if I needed her, her demeanor was so pleasant until I asked her to show me around. Even tho I could'nt find what I wanted she still offered as much as she could and I vowed to go back to see her!

Tim Williams and his team were amazing to work with. We came from Virginia Beach for the Ioniq EV (not available in our area) and received a 5 star treatment. Tim, Kayla and Deshaun were so professional and friendly. We got a great deal with superior customer service. When its time for our next vehicle purchase, will definitely go back.

My service was phenomenal! I came into Pohanka for a quick service on my Hyundai Elantra. There was something snagging on my tire. Not only did John help me right away, he and his team fixed the issue and washed my car! I was on my way in no time. The staff is very professional. I will definitely visit again. Thanks John!
