How Often Should You Rotate Your Tires?

mechanic removing tires from car

How often should you rotate your tires? Generally, when to rotate tires is usually every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. That interval works as a rule of thumb, but you should always check your owner’s manual for exact figures. Need more information? Review this easy guide from Vatland CDJR, and our trusted Fort Pierce regional service department.

Rotating Tires on FWD and RWD Vehicles

First, the big determining factor in how to rotate tires is whether you’re working on a FWD or RWD vehicle. The former sends power from the engine to the front tires, while the latter sends it to the rear. Tires that get the engine power will wear faster. Keep these tips in mind when it’s time to perform service:

  • For FWD or RWD cars, tire rotation needs to be performed every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. Be sure to consult your owner’s manual for exact figures.
  • If you’re performing a FWD tire rotation yourself, be sure to flip sides when moving the rear tires. For example, the rear right tire will go on the front left. However, when moving the front tires to the back, keep them on the same side.
  • When rotating tires on a RWD car, invert the process above. Flip sides when moving the front tires to the back, but keep the rear tires on the same side when moving them forward.
  • Going off-road or towing heavy loads will affect how often you need to rotate your tires, among other factors. Talk with the service experts at Vatland CDJR to get a better idea of a maintenance schedule that fits your driving habits.

AWD Tire Rotation Tips

Curious how many miles to rotate tires on an AWD model? Each tire wears differently, and at different speeds on these vehicles. So most experts set the standard timeline at 3,000 to 5,000 miles for a tire rotation. But again, be sure to always check your owner’s manual for exact numbers for your specific vehicle. Can’t remember the last time you performed a tire rotation? Schedule service at Vatland CDJR. We’ll perform an inspection and see if you’re due. Tires usually require a rotation once the tread variance exceeds 2/32 of an inch.

Why Rotate Tires?

Tire rotation definitely extends the life of your in uniform fashion. Beyond that, regular tire rotation results in some additional advantages:

  • Improved traction on slippery roads
  • Less noise on the road
  • Relieves unnecessary stress on the drivetrain

Be better prepared for hazardous weather around Sebastian, and keep tire rotations as part of your maintenance plan. Caring for your tires doesn’t mean they’ll last forever, of course. But if you’re in need of replacement, Vatland CDJR can help you get back on the road quicker!
