to schedule your tire rotation at 106St Tire & Wheel.

Tires should be rotated often, 3,000 to 5,000 miles whether or not they show obvious signs of wear. Tire rotation is best performed while your vehicle is off the ground, so you can have it done during oil changes. With your vehicle on the lift your tires can be inspected for damage and uneven wear, pressure and also the treads can be cleaned by removing stones and debris.

The tires on the front axle of your vehicle accomplish very different tasks than the tires on the rear axle. Tires on a front-wheel drive vehicle are responsible for steering and cornering and are more prone to wearing than those on a rear wheel drive vehicle.
