How Often Should You Rotate Your Tires?

In most cases, tires are rotated every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. While this is a reliable rule to follow, you can find the exact figures for your model in its owner’s manual. The Brent Brown Toyota service center has a simple guide to how often you should rotate your tires.



Rotating Tires on FWD and RWD Vehicles

The designations of front-wheel and rear-wheel drive have to do with where the engine power is sent. For a front-wheel drive vehicle, it is sent to the front tires, while for a rear-wheel drive car it is sent to the rear tires. If you opt for a FWD or RWD vehicle, remember these tire rotation tips:

  • If you’re doing a tire rotation on a FWD vehicle 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 a 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.
  • Think about how you drive. Off-roading will affect how often you need to rotate your tires. Talk with the service experts at Brent Brown Toyota to get a better idea of a maintenance schedule that fits your driving habits.

AWD Tire Rotation Tips

Are you wondering how many miles to rotate tires on an AWD model? AWD vehicles work a little differently since each tire wears differently, and at various speeds. Most service experts follow

the standard timeline of 3,000 to 5,000 miles. However, it’s recommended to check your owner’s manual for the exact timeline. If you can’t remember when your last tire rotation was performed, schedule a service appointment to have your tires inspected. Tires will normally need a rotation once the tread variance exceeds 2/32 of an inch.

Why Rotate Tires?

Tire rotation extends the life of your tires. Through regular rotations, your vehicle gets these added benefits:

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

Lehi drivers should prepare for bad weather by keeping tire rotations as part of their maintenance plan. If you need a tire replacement, visit our tire center for assistance or to place an order!
