How Often Should You Rotate Your Tires?
You know you should get an oil change every 5,000 to 10,000 miles, but how often should you rotate your tires in Arlington? The general rule of thumb for when to rotate your tires is every 5,000 to 7,000 miles. You can also check your vehicle’s owner’s manual for the specific interval.
Why do You Need to Rotate Your Vehicle’s Tires?
While this may seem optional, it’s actually a very important part of routine maintenance and highly recommended. That’s because your tires experience wear and tear unevenly, which can limit their lifespan. By rotating the tires regularly, you promote more even wear, so they can last for as long as possible as you drive around Memphis.
When to Rotate Tires on RWD and FWD Vehicles
Front-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive vehicles can follow the 5,000- to 7,000-mile rule for tire rotations. If you’re doing a tire rotation at home near Cordova, this is what you should know:
- FWD Vehicles: Move the back tires forward to the opposite sides. Left back tire goes on the front right side. The front tires move straight back, so you put the front right tire on the back right side.
- RWD Vehicles: The front tires move back to the opposite sides, so the front right tire goes to the rear left side. The back tires move straight forward, so the back left tire goes on the front left side.
How Many Miles to Rotate Tires on AWD Vehicles?
All-wheel drive vehicles require that the tires be rotated more frequently — every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. That’s because each individual tire wears differently. If you are taking your vehicle off-road and have speciality tires installed, your rotation interval might be different. Check your vehicle’s manual and your tires to ensure you’re rotating them regularly.
