How Often Should You Rotate Your Tires?

Tire Rotation
 

How often should you rotate your tires? When to rotate tires can depend on your driving style, what terrain you drive on, and the types of tires you use, but for the average vehicle, rotate them at a 5,000-mile to 7,500-mile interval. Still curious for more specifics on when to rotate tires? Let the service department at Voss Hyundai in Dayton answer your question in depth, and if you have more questions, be sure to check out our FAQ on car maintenance

 

 

Rotating Tires on FWD and RWD Vehicles

For starters, let’s define FWD and RWD. If you’re driving front-wheel drive in Miamisburg, that means your vehicle is accelerating with its front wheels—the rear wheels are passively rolling. As for RWD, flip the definition of FWD on its head: the rear wheels do the accelerating around Centerville. Whichever wheels are dominant in your car are the ones wearing the fastest. Here are a few thingsKettering drivers should consider:

  • If you’re performing an FWD tire rotation yourself, remember to change sides when moving your rear tires. For instance, the rear left tire will go on the front right. 
  • When rotating tires on an RWD car, however, you won’t want to invert the tire locations from right to left like you would on an FWD vehicle. You’ll simply move the left rear-wheel tire to the left front position, and the right rear tire to the right front position. 
  • Keep in mind how you drive. For instance, if you off-road or live in the country and drive on gravel roads often, it will have an effect on how often you need to rotate your tires. 

AWD Tire Rotation Tips

How many miles to rotate tires on an AWD model? This is a trickier question as each tire will wear differently at different speeds, but the ground rule is to have them rotated every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. As always, check your owner’s manual for specifics about your model. If you can’t quite remember when the last time you had your tires rotated was, please contact our service department for fast and affordable inspection. 

Why Rotate Tires?

Common knowledge will tell you tire rotation extends the life of your tires. Beyond that, regular tire rotation gives your vehicle additional benefits:

  • Having even tires reduces stress on your engine and improves fuel economy.
  • You’ll wear through your tires more slowly, saving in the long run. 
  • Uneven tires can stress your alignment and cause it to warp.
