September in central New York,
I requested a tire rotation, but it was not performed. The shop (who mounted the tires when I bought them) tells me, “the better tires are still in front.”
The Vibe’s manual tells me to rotate them every 5K - 8K miles. I do not drive very far, only within the county where I live. If a friend is ill, I’ll waste no time driving to another state. Winters in central New York are brutal, but fun. Bring on more snow! Now, better tires in front, will mean a better car for the snow, which starts in January. The roads are usually well-plowed where I live, but I still stay home when the roads are hazardous–too many around me have no idea how to drive in snow (former residents of tropical countries).
The tires were rotated in October of last year. Should I go to a different shop, or wait until the next oil change to rotate the tires?
Thanks for the advice,
