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.
