We may not always think about this but it is important to know for the overall health and performance of our vehicles. So if you are wondering, how often should my tires be rotated? We are here to help and to answer all of your questions on tire rotation. To start off, it is recommended that tires should be rotated every six months or every 4,000-6,000 miles. Manufacturers may have a different recommendation based on the make and model of your vehicle so be sure to consult your service technician if you are unsure.
How to Know When Tires Need to be Rotated
There are several signs to know when your tires need to be rotated, like uneven wear on the tires and a vibration when driving over 40 mph. Like we said before, generally you should have your tires rotated every 4,000-6,000 miles unless otherwise noted but if you are noticing these signs then make sure to get your vehicle in to be serviced as soon as possible before it creates larger issues.
Why Do Tires Need to be Rotated?
Basically, routine tire rotation will expand the life of your tires, improve their performance and increase the overall safety of your vehicle. As you drive, tires wear differently, the front two tires will wear down much faster than the rear tires. The front wheels do the majority of the braking and all of the power transfer, causing them to wear easily. Regular tire rotation will equalize the wear of your tires and maximize the traction of each wheel. This in turn, will allow you to get more miles out of your tires before having to replace them. You will also have a better handle on the road and will be able to turn or stop suddenly much more safely.
