Tire Rotations & Tire Replacements MN
A vehicle’s tires can be one of the most important aspects of safe driving, and determining how a vehicle will drive in general. Regular tire rotations can also determine in what conditions it will drive safely, and how long it will be able to be driven before it can no longer function properly without new tires. At St. Paul Automotive, our St. Paul, Minnesota mechanics have been in the vehicle maintenance and repair business for years, servicing vehicles from top to bottom, inside and out. In Minnesota, we’ve found that having fresh tires with good tread and proper care is essential for safe driving, especially when drivers are dealing with snow, ice, hail, and rain. The Minnesota weather that we’ve all come to know and love is never kind to our vehicles, and harsh Minnesota storms can only be driven through in a reliable vehicle with tires that have what it takes to challenge the storms.
Proper Tire Upkeep Includes Routine Tire Rotations
When you buy new tires, it’s easy to think that, from here on out, everything will be perfectly smooth now that your old tires are gone and your new deep-tread tires are working their magic. What vehicle owners tend to forget, though, is that new tires aren’t invincible, and they aren’t going to last for years all on their own. While new tires do have the promise of lasting for years, if you don’t properly maintain them, they won’t last nearly as long as you’d like. With routine tire rotations, though, you can ensure that your tires last and work effectively for much longer, helping you save hundreds of dollars on the cost of replacing tires too often.
Rotating your tires isn’t a “fix” like most things your car needs. It’s not a repair, and it’s not something that you have to do in order to make your car run. However, rotating your tires is just as important as having your oil changed, using the proper gasoline for your engine, or any other type of good vehicle maintenance. When you rotate your tires, it ensures that they’ll wear evenly, giving each tire a break from being in one position on your vehicle. This way, you can be sure that your tires are losing tread slowly rather than breaking down quickly due to constant stress and friction on one part of each tire.
Free Tire Rotations with a Tire Purchase!
We understand the costs of vehicle upkeep, and that’s why we want to help you make maintaining your vehicle as affordable as possible with free tire rotations. That’s why when you purchase your new tires from St. Paul Automotive, you’ll receive free tire rotations!
Although new tires can last tens of thousands of miles over the span of a few years, you should be rotating your tires every 6,000 to 8,000 miles so that your tires’ tread doesn’t wear out prematurely. Because new tires last far longer than the time between tire rotations, it can be discouraging to think about paying to have your tires rotated every few months or every year until you need new tires. If you’re rotating your tires as often as you should, this could mean you’re back in the auto shop every six months, and if that’s the case, you don’t want to have to pay for all of those tire rotations. Instead, invest in St. Paul Automotive tires, and rest easy knowing that free tire rotations are included with your purchase.
When is it Time to Buy New Tires?
When your tires are replaced, you’ll notice a dramatic difference in the tread patterns and overall quality and appearance of your tires. You’ll see just how worn down your tires have become, realizing the amount of wear that is put on your vehicle’s tires before they’re changed. Often times, it’s difficult for drivers to fathom how they’ve been driving around for so long with wheels that have so little tread. Although there’s no specific amount of time a set of tires will last, if a vehicle is driven an average number of miles each year, which is about 12,000 miles, tires should last for three or four years. The best way to find out how often you should rotate and replace your tires is to check out your vehicle’s owner’s manual. As long as you properly maintain your vehicle and have it routinely inspected and services by experienced mechanics, your vehicle’s tires should be able to last as long as your manual says.
