How Often Should You Rotate Your Tires?

Mechanic with Tires

 

Following your vehicle’s recommended maintenance schedule is the best way to keep it running smoothly in Beaumont for years to come. So, how often should you rotate your tires? Most vehicles require a tire rotation every 5,000 to 7,500 miles, but this interval may vary depending on your make and model, as well as your driving habits. Check your owner’s manual for a more exact interval, and read the guide below from the Nissan of Silsbee service center for more detailed information about when to rotate tires.

How Many Miles to Rotate Tires: FWD vs. AWD

Your vehicle’s drivetrain has a significant impact on how many miles to rotate tires. That’s because front-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive vehicles send power only to the front and rear axles, respectively; while all-wheel drive vehicles send power to both axles. As a result, the tires of AWD vehicles wear down more quickly and must be rotated more frequently to prevent uneven tread wear.

When it comes to how many miles to rotate tires for FWD and RWD vehicles, keep these points in mind:

  • FWD and RWD vehicles require tire rotation about every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. Your owner’s manual can privee a more exact interval.
  • Performing a FWD tire rotation yourself? You’ll need to flip sides when moving the rear tires to the front. For example, the rear right tire will move to the front left position, but the front tires will stay on the same side when moving to the rear.
  • For a RWD rotation, invert the FWD rotation pattern: flip the front tires to the opposite side when bridging them to the rear, and keep the rear tires on the same side when moving them up front.
  • Rough roads and off-roading cause faster tread wear, and will impact how many miles to rotate tires.

AWD Tire Rotation Pattern

How often should you rotate your tire for AWD vehicles? These vehicles require rotation every 3,000 – 5,000 miles, and a different rotation pattern:

  1. Left rear tire to the right front.
  2. Right rear tire to the left front.
  3. Right front tire to the left rear.
  4. Left front tire to the right rear.

Why Rotate Tires?

We’ve gone over how often you should rotate your tires, but why is it so important to rotate them on a schedule? As you drive, tire treads naturally wear down in some spots, but not others. If left unchecked, this uneven wear makes it harder for your tires to grip the road surface, especially in hazardous weather. Rotation evens out the tread wear so that the full surface of your tires can make contact with the road while you drive in Buna. Our service team can show you how to check your tire tread. Just a few benefits of routine tire rotation include:

  • Longer tire life
  • Better traction on slippery roads
  • A quieter drive
  • Less stress on the drivetrain
