A Volkswagen vehicle is built to last. Whether you drive away from Heritage Volkswagen Catonsville in a stylish sedan or a spacious crossover, that vehicle is with you for the long haul. The reliability of these vehicles doesn't mean that you can skip out on routine maintenance like tire rotations though.

Fortunately, our Volkswagen service center can help you out with all types of maintenance, and so much more.  

What Is a Tire Rotation?  

When our mechanics perform a tire rotation, they remove the tires and place them in another tire location. Switching up the positions of your tires actually helps them last longer. This is because switching the positions of your tires helps them continue to wear down at the same, more even rate.  

When tires wear down unevenly, they have a harder time delivering the traction that you need to stay safe in all types of driving conditions. At the same time, uneven wear could require you to replace your tires earlier than expected. If one tire is too worn down, that often means that all four need to be replaced! Tire rotations keep you safer on the road and save you money.

When Do I Need a Tire Rotation? 

A tire rotation should be performed every six months or every 5,000 to 8,000 miles, more or less depending on how often you drive. Fortunately, this is not too hard to remember because that milestone often coincides with your oil change service interval. When you get new filters and fresh oil, ask about a tire rotation as well. Your tires and your wallet will thank you.
