To help maintain even treadwear and prolong tire life, review this quick reference about alignment, rotation, and visual inspections. For a professional evaluation, visit a Goodyear Tire & Service Network location.

Misalignment of the front or rear wheels can cause rapid or uneven wear. Front-wheel-drive vehicles and those with independent rear suspension require alignment of all four wheels, instead of two. Getting your alignment checked as specified in your vehicle's owner's manual is the recommended way to prolong tire life.4

Sometimes irregular tire wear can be corrected by rotating your tires. Consult your vehicle's owner's manual or visit a Goodyear Tire & Service Network location to find the appropriate rotation pattern for your vehicle. If your tires show uneven wear, ask an expert in the Goodyear Tire & Service Network to check for and correct any misalignment, imbalance, or other mechanical problem involved before rotation.4

A tire's tread directly affects how it grips the road, so it's important to regularly inspect it visually for signs of uneven wear. These signs can include high or low areas, or unusually smooth ones.4
