tyre rotation is from front to back on the same side of the vehicle . It is recommended by tyre shops as it is good for business ( 4 tyres instead of 2) The other down side to tyre rotation is that you do not get a good idea of wheel alignment problems to know what to fix. Next down side is that once a wear pattern has been established that pattern will continue because the tyres are radial construction
Front drive cars wear out the front tyres in 1/4 the time that it takes for back tyres and a faulty tyre will have a wear pattern that indicates wheel alignment/ driver abuse but in fact is from case construction.It is something that I have not recommended since radial tyres came into being.
Did you ever see the statements in the tire dealer shops stating a specific tire model will last approx. 50-75,000 miles/
This will never happen unless you have your tires rotated every 7500 miles, the front tires wear excessively compared to the rear tires in 90% of the cars/trucks.
Why? Because the front tires in most cases are the drive tires(front wheel drive) causing the front tires to ocasionally spin causing excessive wear and also the front tires are the ones that guide your vehicle down the road, when you turn the steering wheel you are turning the front tires to make the car go in the direction you want thus causing more excessive wear to the front tires, in order to get even wear from front to back tires one must move the front tires to the back tires at 7500 mile intervals, making sure the tires only get rotated to the same side of the car each and every time, if you move a right rear tire to a left front position, severe damage may occur so please keep them same side rotations.
Also have your wheel alignment checked at a tire shop each time you bring it in for a wheel/tire rotation as pot holes, hitting curbs,etc all can effect the way the tires wear if the alignment goes out.
1. One of the tires has developed a bulge. If the vibration builds up then it may be this cause. It happens.
2. A wheel is out of balance (a counter weight they attach to your rim has fallen off). Have your tires balanced (all of them) - and rotate them while you're at it. If you have over 60,000 miles on the Vue you may need new shock absorbers too. Have them check for that.
3. The front wheels are out of alignment - you can tell by letting go of the steering wheel. If it pulls either right or left you got a problem. Get this fixed soon since it really wears out your tires fast.
It depends on what kind of uneven wear you are talking about if the front is wearing on the inside or outside on one side or both yes you need an alignment but if front tires are are worn about the same on the inside and outside of the tire that is not uncommon it is better to rotate the tires about every 5,000-7,000 and keep the air close to maximum as they will get you better gas mileage and wear better example if the tire says a maximum of 44psi put about 38-40psi when tires are cold and havent been ran.If those are the original tires and you have 49,000 on your car then you don't need an alignment.
Well, it might simply mean they wish to rotate your tires. When you are told your tires need to be rotated, it means your tires are warn on certain parts. You can get quite a few more miles out of the tires if you simply rotate, or move the front right to another place on the car, and change the rest of the tires positions as well.
They might also want to just check to see how warn they are in general, but their likely going to rotate, and align your tires.
Tires/alignment issue here. You can try to rotate your tires and see if the pulling goes away. Otherwise, you have an alignment or front end problem. Bring it in for an alignment and they will check your front end and line it up. Hope this helps.
Please remember to rate this fix.
once a were pattern is worn in tire s unless you rotate tires to the rear they will keep wearing you should rotate your tires every oil change especially if you do alot of around town driving i am willing to bet you that good year lied to you about the alignment i am sure the dealer put it into spec the first time you just need to rotate them a little more often
