How Often Should You Rotate Your Tires?

Wheel change

How often should you rotate your tires? Many Arlington drivers have wondered when to rotate tires, so you are not alone. A tire rotation should be performed at each 5,000 – 7,500-mile interval. While this recommendation should work for most makes and models, it’s recommended to take a look at your owner’s manual to see if the automaker has different suggestions that should be followed. Still curious when to rotate tires? Wolfchase Honda has additional information for drivers in the Memphis area.

Tips for Rotating Tires on FWD and RWD Vehicles

What does it mean when a vehicle is designated as FWD or RWD? It is simply which wheels receive the power sent from the engine. For a front-wheel drive car, the front tires receive the power. The opposite is true for a rear-wheel drive car. Keep in mind that the set of tires getting the bulk of the engine power will wear faster than the others. If your vehicle has one of these drivetrain options, you will want to follow the tips listed below.

  • The 5,000 to 7,500-mile interval should be sufficient for FWD or RWD cars. Remember that it is important to see what is recommended by the manufacturer.
  • If you plan to perform this service task on your own and have a FWD car, you will have to swap sides when moving the rear tires. For example, the rear right tire will go on the front left. When you move the front tires to the back, they should remain on the same side.
  • If you have a RWD car, the process described above should be reversed. Change sides when moving the front tires to the back. When the rear tires are moved forward, they should stay on the same side.
  • Do you do a lot of off-roading or driving in less-than-ideal conditions? You may have to rotate your tires more frequently. The experts at Wolfchase Honda would be glad to talk with you and create a maintenance schedule that matches your driving needs.

Steps for AWD Tire Rotation

Curious how many miles to rotate tires on an AWD model? If your vehicle has this type of drivetrain, a tire rotation should be performed more often. With AWD each tire suffers different wear and tear at different speeds. That is why it is recommended that a tire rotation is scheduled at each 3,000 – 5,000-mile interval. Once again, it is a good idea to see what the manufacturer suggests. Unsure about the last time your vehicle was brought in for a tire rotation? Don’t worry! Set up an appointment with the experts at Wolfchase Honda.

Why is a Tire Rotation Necessary?

One of the main benefits of having a tire rotation is that this service prolongs the life of your tires. However, that is not the only reason why it is important to keep up with regular tire rotations. Here are just a few reasons why you don’t want to skip this service.

  • Improved traction on slippery roads
  • Less noise on the road
  • Relieves unnecessary stress on the drivetrain

If you want to be ready for any driving condition you encounter in Memphis, keep tire rotations as part of your maintenance plan. Even if you keep up with all recommended tire maintenance, your tires will still eventually need to be replaced. If you’re in need of replacement, our tire center can help you out!
