When you take your car in to get the tires rotated, the mechanic will first inspect the tires to see if they need to be replaced. If the tires are in good condition, they will be removed from the car and the new tires will be put on. The mechanic will then check the alignment and adjust it if necessary.

Q: Why do mechanics rotate tires?
A: There are a few reasons why mechanics rotate tires:
1. To promote even wear: If your tires are always in the same position, they will wear down unevenly. Rotating them allows them to wear evenly, which will help them last longer.
2. To improve traction: Tires that are worn down in certain areas can cause reduced traction. Rotating them can help improve traction.
3. To improve handling: Unevenly worn tires can cause your vehicle to handle poorly. Rotating them can help improve handling.
Q: Do tires need alignment after rotation?
A: There is no definitive answer, as it depends on the specific tires and vehicle. However, it is generally recommended to have an alignment check after rotating tires.
