Proton S16 Tyre rotation

When should I get my Proton S16 tyres be rotated?

The tyres on your Proton S16 are the main contact between you and the road and are often overlooked when it comes to vehicle maintenance.

Your Proton S16's tyres are made up of a combination of synthetic and natural rubber, along with steel belts or cords to provide a solid but pliable cushion to absorb vibration and bumps from the road surface.

The surface of the tyre or 'tread' is designed to provide excellent grip on the road surface as well as disperse standing water when travelling on wet roads. 

Tyres wear down over time but getting a tyre rotation at certain intervals promotes even tyre wear and can save you money in the long run.

Benefits of a tyre rotation:

  • Increased tyre life
  • Prevents uneven tyre wear
  • Reduces road noise due to uneven tread wear
  • Increased safety

Signs that your tyres need rotating:

  • Tyres wearing excessively on the inside or outside edge
  • Living in an area with many roundabouts - excessive cornering can cause tyres to wear on the outside edge
  • Tyres that have become noisy due to low tyre pressures 

If your Proton S16 is fitted with directional tyres, they can only be moved from front to back. Interchanging directional tyres side to side will not allow the tread pattern to work efficiently and will make the vehicle unsafe and dangerous to operate.

Rotating the tyres on your Proton S16 at the recommended intervals will increase your tyre life and ensure they are wearing evenly. High-quality tyres that are in good condition will ensure your vehicle is in the safest condition possible.

Most tyre manufacturers recommend rotating tyres every 10,000km or 6 months - whichever occurs first. When it's time to rotate, AutoGuru is here to help.
