Allow us the pleasure of sparing you any guesswork regarding tire rotation before contacting us to schedule your service appointment.


Is Tire Rotation Necessary?

Not only is tire rotation necessary, it's integral to your vehicle for more than a few reasons. Firstly, this tire service ensures that each of your tires wears out evenly, which prolongs their lifespan and spares you the premature expense of buying a new set of rubber. In addition to these perks, tire rotation also enhances your vehicle's fuel efficiency and ensures optimal performance, handling, and safety, all while minimizing the risk of tire failure. In other words, tire rotation doesn't just save you money on tires, it also keeps you from overspending on gas and allows you to enjoy your car's driving dynamics to the fullest.

How Often Should You Rotate Your Tires?

As with most regular vehicle maintenance services, you can consult your owner's manual for the recommended tire rotation intervals, or you can book one with our Service Centre on every other oil change just to be on the safe side. Some experts recommend a tire rotation every 8,000 km or so, but if you spend more of your time on the road than most - especially in winter - it never hurts to book a couple of tire rotation services a year, as winter's snow, salt, slush, and ice can be trying on anyone's tires. Our Tire Centre can provide you with the set of rubber that suits your vehicle best and any service recommendations you may need, and our Service Centre's technicians will gladly tend to your tires with every appointment you book with us.

Tire Rotation, Balance & Alignment: What's the Difference?

Simply put, tire rotation involves changing the position of your tires depending on your drive system, so each of them can wear evenly and get you the most out of their lifespan. Tire balancing, on the other hand, ensures that each tire's weight is equally distributed around each of your wheels. While rotation consists of moving your wheels to a new position, balancing is meant to detect weight imbalances within each wheel, after which our technicians correct them with counterweights and reinstall them. Like tire rotation, a balancing service can ensure that your tires wear out evenly, but it's also integral to giving you a smooth ride, as unbalanced tires often produce vibrations or a wobbly drive.

Even tire wear also depends greatly on your wheel alignment, and as with unbalanced tires, a skewed alignment can also lead to recurring vibrations and an unstable ride. We offer this standard vehicle maintenance at Number 7 Honda, and we'll rectify any alignment issues and return them to the factory-recommended angles in short order.

Tire Rotation for Front-Wheel Drive & AWD Vehicles

How we rotate your tires depends greatly on your vehicle's drivetrain, as front-wheel drive puts greater wear on the front axle tires, while all-wheel drive puts your tires to work more evenly. As a result, front-wheel drive models get different rotation patterns than those with all-wheel drive. If your car is driven by its two front wheels, we'll swap them with the rear tires or in a "cross to drive" pattern, depending on whether your treads are directional. As for all-wheel drive, our technicians can conduct either a straight rotation or a four-tire cross rotation that moves each one across the opposing axle.

Whether your vehicle needs a tire rotation, balancing, or wheel alignment, our Service Centre can oblige. Our factory-trained technicians can tend to your car's every need and help you optimize your tires' lifespan and your vehicle's performance in equal measure.
