Tesla Tire Rotation in Castro Valley, CA

Adams Autoworx in Castro Valley offers Tesla services, including Tesla tire rotation. Tire rotation allows for even tire wear, and thus extends tire life. This is particularly important for Tesla vehicles, because EVs are hard on tires. The weight of the vehicle ( because of the battery pack), and the fact that it really is fun to drive, result in accelerated tire wear. At Adams Autoworx we follow Tesla recommendation to perform tire rotation every 6250 miles.  We will not only perform the tire rotation, but will be happy to set a future appointment and to remind you of the next tire rotation. We offer this appointment reminder service because Tesla electric vehicles do not require oil changes – for internal combustion engine powered vehicles oil change was a natural opportunity to rotate tires, and with the use of synthetic oil, the interval was similar to what Tesla recommends, or roughly 5,000 to 6,000 miles. But since there is no need for Tesla oil changes, we rely on c ... read more
