When you think of vehicle health and maintenance, you typically picture inspecting the engine and working on stuff under the hood. But did you know that your tires require just as much TLC as your engine? It’s true! Your Volkswagen model’s tires are in constant contact with the road and frequently encounter rough conditions that cause them to wear down. And due to different axle weights between the front and back, your tires will not wear down evenly.
Luckily, there is an easy solution so you can enjoy your current set of tires as long as possible: a tire rotation! So what exactly is a tire rotation? Well, it is when we remove each of your tires and place them on a different wheel. This task, which is recommended for every six months or 6,000 to 8,000 miles, helps ensure more even wear and tear to your Volkswagen vehicle.
While it is possible to do a tire rotation on your own, it is much easier to let the professionals do it. And no one does it better than the service technicians here at Donaldsons Volkswagen! Our technicians are specially trained to know the ins and outs of each Volkswagen vehicle and know the best rotation methods. And it helps that we have hoists so your vehicle can be lifted up and the tires can be mounted correctly.
During your Volkswagen model’s tire rotation, we will inspect the overall health of your tires and other key areas of your vehicle to ensure safety and dependability. If we happen to notice that something is out of sorts, we will let you know and offer guidance as far as repairs are concerned.
If your Volkswagen vehicle is due for a tire rotation, please contact us here at Donaldsons Volkswagen and schedule a service appointment today.
