As we get older one of the classes we regret not taking is auto shop. From the unexpected to flat tires to the never ending schedule of oil changes, being able to do these things on your own is an advantage. Since we aren’t all able to do these things, we have to be able to trust the skills of the mechanic that we choose. At Milex Auto Center, we have mechanics with only the highest quality of knowledge. That being said, when we work on cars, one of the things that we see neglected most often is people getting their tires rotated and aligned.

Now, for years we’ve had it embedded in our brains that oil changes need to happen every 3,000 miles or so, therefore we automatically schedule a time to stop in to the mechanic and get it taken care of. This needs to be the instance for getting tires rotated and aligned because of the long term effects and damage that not doing so, could do.

Rotating your tires prevents flat tire incidents by rotating the tire to the part that hasn’t gotten the most use. While you may find paying for this expensive, or just entirely a waste of money, this procedure actually helps you get the most out of your tires. This also keeps them from getting so bald and worn down that they pop. While this helps you get the most out of your tires, getting your car aligned helps you get the most use out of your car. The alignment of your car shifts even the slightest when you go over bumps, hit a curb or turn too quickly.

The best way to judge when you should be getting these done is by scheduling them when you go in for an oil change. This helps kill two birds with one stone and leaves your car in the best condition possible. If you don’t remember the last time that you had your car looked at, it’s best to schedule this, and maybe an oil change too, just to get it taken care of.
