A Tire Rotation for Toyota in Tacoma will differ for front-wheel drive vehicles versus rear-wheel drive vehicles due to many different factors. The tires on a front-wheel drive vehicle experience more stress as the weight of the engine is directly over the wheels that turn and power the car. During braking and cornering, the weight of your car presses the tires into the road for traction, and over time will wear out the tread. When you bring your Toyota in for a tire rotation, we swap the front tires for the rear tires. We do this because your rear tires on a front-wheel drive car experience far less wear. It’s a good idea to have wheel locks added to your car for safety. This procedure is simple and easy to do if we are already rotating the tires. With the lugnuts removed, we can quickly replace one with a locking nut and provide you with a unique key.
If your Toyota is due for new tires, we will suggest a set of factory recommended tires that suit your driving habits. Our team members can provide you an estimated next visit based upon how many miles you estimate will be driven each year. Other tire-related services we provide includes repairing tires with small leaks. We will remove the tire from the wheel and inspect the damage. Often times we can patch the tire and save you the cost of purchasing brand new tires. The process is quick and the technician will give you their expert opinion.
