Tire Rotation Services in Xenia, OH

Tire rotation is moving a vehicle’s tires from one position to another — usually in front-left, rear-right, front-right, and rear-left. This helps ensure a more even tread wear; it also prolongs the life of your tires by up to 25 percent, enabling you to get the most out of them. This also prevents uneven wear and tear.

At Pitt Stop Tire & Auto, we recommend rotating your tires every 5,000 to 8,000 miles or when the tread depth becomes noticeably different from side to side. Our technicians have years of experience, and we can ensure that the work is done correctly and efficiently. We also comprehensively inspect your tires to ensure proper tread depth and any potential underlying issues.

If you’re in need of a tire rotation or if you have questions about the process, contact us today. We’re happy to provide more information and help you get the most out of your vehicle’s tires.

“What is Tire Rotation?”

Tire rotation means periodically changing the position of each tire on your vehicle. You should rotate your tires as the vehicle manufacturer recommends or every 5,000 miles. For many of you, that will mean when you get your vehicle’s oil changed.

Regularly rotating your tires also allows you to inspect them for damage visually, check their air pressure, have them rebalanced if you’re ice any vibration, and check their tread depth. Check out some benefits of tire rotation:

3 Benefits of Regular Tire Rotation:

Even Wearing of Tires

Different tires on your vehicle wear differently because their functions are different. For example, the front tires on a front-wheel-drive vehicle work harder for tasks such as accelerating, turning, and braking. These tasks can cause the tire to wear quicker than other tires. With even tire wear, performance is balanced across tires.

Uniform Wearing of Tire Tread

Uniform tire tread is essential for an excellent grip on roads, even during difficult conditions such as snow and rain. Even tire tread enables you to accelerate smoothly and improves brake stopping distance.

Tire rotation spreads wear evenly among tires, evens tread life. This results in a uniform tread depth on all four tires. Better tread wear and depth improve overall vehicle performance, including braking and cornering.

Prevents Tread Cupping

Vehicles with tread cupping issues experience a bouncing motion. Cupping reduces tire traction, which can make driving unsafe. In addition, cupping results in noise and vibration. Regular tire rotation prevents tread cupping.

“Why Should I Rotate My Tires?”

Rotating your tires may not seem vital, but it can significantly impact your car. Practicing tire rotation helps ensure even wear down on your tires. When you fail to rotate your tires, you leave your car prone to uneven wear down and potential alignment issues. Each position of your tires on your specific vehicle will require different give from each tire.

Even wear down makes for a smoother ride and makes your car handling safer. Rotating tires can also extend your tires’ life, saving you time and money. Make your tires last longer and save yourself from the hassle of flat tires. Rotating your tires will help you maximize tread life. Equal tread wear keeps the tread depth on your tires uniform.

Tire Rotation Questions & Answers

Can You Skip Tire Rotation?

Skipping tire rotation is dangerous and often not worth it. When you don’t rotate your car’s tires on the recommended schedule, they’re more likely to fail or otherwise affect the handling of your vehicle. Your best bet is to play it safe and rotate your tires on the schedule recommended by the manufacturer.


All-wheel drive vehicles (AWD) require the most regular maintenance and tire rotations since these vehicles must have matching tires to prevent damage to the entire driving system. Our service center’s ASE-certified technicians recommend performing a tire rotation service at least with every-other oil change (or every 5,000- 7,500 miles).


Your tire’s lifetime in mileage will depend on your maintenance and driving habits. Your tires could last up to 60,000 miles if you take good care of them, but this mileage will decrease if you don’t have to perform regular tire rotations. Maintaining the appropriate air pressure is essential and will help extend your tires’ lifetime and gas mileage.
