How GPS Tracking Helps You Remember Tire Rotations

GPS tracking: Treading with intelligence

The most difficult part of making sure your fleet vehicles get regular maintenance is actually remembering to have it done, but GPS tracking can help you continue to tread on. With all the miles a fleet truck travels, it’s no surprise that they require so much maintenance. One of the easiest, yet most vital parts, of vehicle maintenance is getting tires rotated. When done properly, rotating tires can give longer life to your tires, improve gas mileage and makes driving safer. It’s an understatement to say that tire rotations are important!

Every vehicle manual should tell the owner when scheduled maintenance is needed, but lets face it, not everyone takes the time to read the manual. A good rule of thumb is to change the tires around at every other oil change. Rotating tires to a different corner of the vehicle keeps the tread from wearing unevenly. If you leave tires in the same place for long periods of time the outside edges on the front tires will wear down quicker than the rest. Inevitably, you’ll have to replace the tires miles sooner. The easiest way to remember to rotate your tires on time is by using GPS tracking reminder alerts. With GPS tracking, maintenance reminders are as easy as pushing a few buttons.

In the GPS tracking device you can enter baseline data to set up the maintenance alert which will be used to calculate the proper mileage or time to alert you. Once the parameters have been set, you may choose to receive your alerts via text message, email, or both, and whether or not to enable this particular alert. GPS tracking makes tire rotations an easy thing to keep track of so that each tire wears out at, relatively, the same rate as the other tires. GPS tracking is what we like to call treading with intelligence.
