How Often Should You Have Your Vehicle's Tires Rotated?

It is best to have your vehicle's tires rotated every 3,000 to 6,000 miles, which will prevent the tires from premature and excessive wear.

When a vehicle's tires at rotated, they will be moved from one side to the other, from front to back, or both. As a result, it will help prevent uneven wear on the tires and will boost performance and gas mileage. Typical tire rotations include the removal and inspection of the tires, placing them where they will wear evenly, and readjusting the tire-pressure monitors.

The Move Over law is one that is not well-known across the United States, despite being the law in all 50 states. It means that drivers need to get into a lane that is farther away from a stopped vehicle on the side of the road. If it is not safe to get into another lane, then it is necessary to at least slow down by 15 mph.

Can You Use Water Instead of Washer Fluid?

Your windshield wipers are there to keep your windshield clean when a bug smashes into it or when a bird has a mess on it. The windshield wipers do a lot of work to clear away these stains, but they wouldn't be as good at it without windshield wiper fluid.

Just like you use soap to clean the dishes, you use windshield wiper fluid when cleaning your windshield. If you use water instead, your windshield will not be as clean. Water doesn't have any solvents and it doesn't have any detergents either.
