How Often Should You Rotate Your Tires?

Mechanic Changing Tire

Raynham auto experts agree that every 5,000 to 7,500 miles is a good interval for when to rotate tires. There are a few factors, though, that could affect your vehicle’s exact range. How often should you rotate your tires? Check out these service tips from the team at Silko Honda!

Rotating Tires on FWD and RWD Vehicles

Depending on whether you drive a front-wheel, rear-wheel, or all-wheel drive vehicle, you may need to rotate your tires more frequently in Brockton. These systems send power to the wheels differently, meaning that your front or rear tires can wear down faster than the others. For example, a front-wheel drive car gets more power from the engine on a daily basis, so failing to rotate will result in having to replace them sooner.

Check out these tire rotation tips for FWD and RWD vehicles:

  • If you’re performing a FWD tire rotation yourself, keep in mind 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 an 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.
  • FWD and RWD vehicles average 5,000 to 7,500 miles between tire rotations, but always check your owner’s manual to be sure.

AWD Tire Rotation Tips

For AWD vehicles, the tire rotation interval is closer to 3,000 to 5,000 miles, since all four tires will be actively engaged and wear down differently. In addition, your tires may experience more or less wear and tear due to:

  • Personal driving habits, such as off-roading or frequent stop-and-go traffic
  • Harsh weather conditions in Taunton
  • Rough terrain or bumpy roads

If you’re not sure how many miles to rotate tires, schedule service at Silko Honda, and we’ll inspect your vehicle to assess whether it’s time for a tire rotation.
