how important is rotating tiresRotating your tires is important, because you want them to wear evenly. Tires don’t wear evenly if left in the same spot continuously. Therefore, it’s important to rotate them on a regular basis according to your auto manual or every few oil changes.

Just How Important is Rotating Tires and Why?

Front tires wear more quickly than rear tires. Uneven tire tread thickness will present you with uneven braking and poor handling. Not only does rotating your tires help them to wear evenly, but it prevents you from having to replace tires two at a time. If you buy new tires for the front, and leave existing tires on the back, you’ll have uneven tread thickness. Keeping your tires rotated periodically and then replacing all four at the same time, whether quality used or new tires, will keep handling and braking traction of the car balanced.

The TireZoo in Anoka and Bloomington both offer tire rotation services. If you have lost track of your recent tire rotation schedule or purchased a different vehicle, stop by and let us take a look. We can assess your tires, check tread, rotate them as needed, and/or replace and match any tires with existing tire tread should one or more tires need replacement. We are here for all your tire questions and needs.

used tires not all the sameWhen referring to used tires, there is a wide range of difference in tires. While some people use the words used and old tires interchangeably in conversation, there is a distinct difference in quality used tires and tires that have outlived their initial intended purpose.

Used Tires Are Not All the Same

There is also a difference in used tires based on a variety of factors including the condition of the tires, age of the tires, tread left on the tires, internal (cord) damage and bulges, and how the tires have been stored. Simply put, used tires are not all the same. The danger is in the buyer and/or seller not knowing how to properly store used tires and assess the quality/integrity of the tire inside and out.

Many people run into trouble buying tires online on auction sites. Their intentions are to save money and get a used tire with plenty of life remaining. The TireZoo specializes in a very large inventory of quality used tires in almost every size and brand, so that you can buy entire sets of tires or match one tire to existing tread on other tires. The TireZoo can save you all the money you are looking to save by buying used tires, but take away the headache and worry about what you’re actually getting. Plus, our tire technicians can mount and balance your tires and have you out the door very quickly.Therefore, it is our recommendation that you not purchase used tires from unknown sources, but give us a call or stop by and let us insure your happy, safe, and within your budget.

If you are wondering if a tire on your vehicle is in need of replacement, stop by and let us take a look. We have locations in Bloomington, MN and Anoka, MN (on the south and north side of the Minneapolis- St. Paul metro area)
