How Often Should You Rotate Your Tires?

No matter if you’re new to owning a car or if you’ve been driving for years, it’s important to know how often to rotate your vehicle’s tires. On average, how you know when to rotate tires depends on vehicle mileage. Namely, it’s a best practice to rotate tires every 5,000 to 7,500 miles or so. This is a rule of thumb, however, and you’ll want to double-check with your vehicle’s owner’s manual for more specific information. In the meantime, learn more about when to rotate tires in this comprehensive guide from the service team at Lexus of Cherry Hill!

How Many Miles to Rotate Tires: FWD and RWD Vehicles

The main difference between front-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive is simply where the engine power is sent. Keeping this in mind, whichever set of tires is receiving the power will wear out faster than the others. This is why tire rotation is so important, as it helps to create a balanced rate of wear across all four tires. Here are a few FWD and RWD tire tips:

  • When to rotate tires for FWD or RWD cars should be every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. Again, though, you can check your owner’s manual to confirm this.
  • Carrying out a FWD tire rotation at home? Be sure to flip sides when you move the rear tires, i.e. the rear right tire should go to the front left. When you move the front tires to the rear, however, they should stay on the same side.
  • When you rotate the tires on a RWD vehicle, the above process can be inverted. So, when you move the front tires to the back, they should go on opposite sides. But when you move the rear tires up front, they can stay on the same side.
  • Do you frequently partake in off-roading or racing events? How many miles to rotate tires will become more frequent in these cases. For personalized advice based on your driving habits, contact the service team at Lexus of Cherry Hill!

What About AWD Tire Rotation?

Interested in learning more about when to rotate tires for an AWD car? Since tires on AWD vehicles wear at different speeds, it’s recommended that they are rotated every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. Again, this is a rule of thumb. For more specific information, it’s best to double-check with your vehicle’s owner’s manual.

What is the Importance of Rotating Tires Regularly?

There are plenty of benefits of regular tire rotations. Not only will this extend the life of your tires, but it’ll save you more money in the long run. Other benefits include:

  • Drive confidently with better road traction during all conditions
  • Lowered stress on your car’s drivetrain
  • Less road noise to endure
