How Often Should You Rotate Your Tires?

Rotating tires
Rotating your car’s tires will help them last longer on Canton roads and enhance safety and performance. You might be wondering, “How often should you rotate tires?” Usually, tire rotation is recommended every 5,000 to 8,000 miles. The intervals can change, depending on your car and how you drive it around North Canton. Check your owner’s manual for specific tire rotation intervals, or speak with one of our certified technicians. Read on to learn more about when to rotate tires and why it matters!



RWD & FWD Vehicles: When to Rotate Tires

Front- and rear-wheel drive vehicles have different tire rotation patterns because their engine power is sent to different wheels. FWD cars send power to the front wheels, while RWD cars send power to the rear wheels. Depending on your car’s drivetrain, certain tires will wear down faster than others. Keep the following in mind when it comes time to rotate your car’s tires:

  • FWD Tire Rotation: Flip sides when moving the rear tires. For example, place the rear right tire on the front left. Keep the tires on the same side when moving the front tires to the back of the vehicle.
  • FWD Tire Rotation: Do the opposite of what’s listed above. Change sides when moving the front tires to the rear of the car. Keep the rear tires on the same side when moving them to the front.

When to Rotate Tires: AWD Tire Rotation Tips

Cars with all-wheel drive have a different tire rotation pattern than a front- or rear-wheel drive vehicle. AWD vehicles tend to require tire rotations more frequently than cars with other drivetrains — usually, every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. The tire rotation pattern for AWD vehicles goes as follows:

  1. The left rear tire goes to the right front position.
  2. The right rear tire goes to the left front position.
  3. The right front tire goes to the left rear position.
  4. The left front tire goes to the right rear position.

Why Should You Rotate Your Tires?

So, why bother to rotate your tires? To summarize, it extends the lifespan of your car’s tires by preventing unnecessary and uneven wear and tear. Tire rotation also leads to a quieter ride, helps reduce the mechanical stress on your tires, and strengthens the tread grip of your tires in average and inclement weather in Canton.
