Uneven tire wear is something that many car owners experience. It is not entirely preventable, but can be managed to keep its effects at a minimum. Some of the usual causes of uneven tire wear are overinflating or underinflating a tire, and bad tire alignment. However, the usual cause of this condition is the uneven distribution of a car’s weight, which may be aggravated by worn suspensions. As a car’s engine is usually in the front, front wheels often wear out faster than those at the rear.
DC tires and auto repair shops offer a solution to uneven tire wear; tire rotation. This is when the tires of a car are moved from one position to another to distribute the load more evenly; and consequently even out the wearing as much as possible. If done correctly, tire rotation can prolong the life of your tires and suspension components.
