Why Do I Need to Rotate My Tires?

Making sure that you keep up your tire rotation helps you lengthen the wear and life of your tires. Rotating your tires regularly ensures they remain in good condition, so you can go longer without replacing them.

What is a Tire Rotation and Why Do I Need It?

Rotating your vehicle’s tires means shifting their location. This encourages even tread wear across all four tires.

The wear on the front and rear tires can vary no matter how you drive. This is because the “free rolling” tires on the other axle outlast the tires installed on the driving axle (the front two wheels in a front-wheel drive or the back two in a rear-wheel drive).

How Often Should I Get My Tires Rotated?

The general norm for tire rotation is every 5,000 miles. Depending on your vehicle, driving style, and tire type, you may need to rotate your tires more frequently. Going too long between rotations may lead to a wear pattern that cannot be repaired.

The need for replacement tires may arise sooner than anticipated due to specific wear patterns. Here are a few key factors and tools to look at so you can keep up with your tire rotation:

  • Keep a watch on your odometer
  • Schedule your rotations on your calendar
  • Consider a tire rotation every time you change your oil
