Hyundai Tire Rotation in Springfield


Like all vehicles, Hyundais require regular maintenance, such as tire rotations, in order to perform at their best. Rotations help prevent the tires' tread from wearing out unevenly and creating a dangerous loss of grip. A different rotation pattern will be used specific to the vehicle's drivetrain (front-wheel or all-wheel drive), so that the wear will continue as evenly as possible based on which tires do the driving versus merely rolling. For example, in a front-wheel drive vehicle, the front tires wear much faster because they are the drive tires, whereas the rear tires just roll along, doing less "work" and therefore wearing down more slowly.

To feel the ultimate peace of mind of knowing that your vehicle is in the hands of brand-specific trained technicians, an authorized Hyundai service facility is your best choice for regular maintenance. Every time they see your car, these factory-trained technicians will keep an eye out for any signs of a developing issue that they can nip in the bud, keeping you safe on the road and even preventing major repairs.


Why Are Tire Rotations Important?

Tire rotations are vital to the keeping each individual tire in its best condition as well as allowing the set of four to have the most equal life span so that they need to be replaced at the same time. If you leave them in the same positions for too long, the drive tires will wear down more quickly and you may end up with less tread on a given edge, especially if the wheels are out of alignment. That adverse situation can lead to an array of dangerous situations - anything from poor handling to total tire failure. Regular tire rotations prevent these things as well as making your set of tires last longer.

As far as how often you need to go in for a tire rotation, the intervals are subject to specifics related to your vehicle and your daily driving conditions and habits. On average, you should plan to have this service performed each time you go in for an oil change (every 6,000 miles, give or take). Look in your owner's manual for the general guidelines for your model, and talk with your authorized Hyundai technician about his observations of how your tires seem to be wearing from visit to visit. He may recommend more frequent or less frequent rotations based on what he sees in their tread wear patterns.
