How Often Should You Rotate Your Tires?

Mechanic rotating a tire

How often should you rotate your tires? Well, it depends. Rotating your tires every 5,000- to 7,500 miles is a good rule of thumb, but every car is slightly different. For exact figures for your model you could check your owner’s manual, but if you’re still curious when to rotate tires read through this simple guide from the folks at Marine Chevrolet, the trusted service center for the Camp Lejeune area. And keep in mind that if you buy your tires from Marine Chevrolet you’ll receive lifetime complimentary tire rotations for the life of the tire.

When to Rotate your Tires for FWD and RWD Vehicles

When rotating tires on front-wheel and rear-wheel drive vehicles it’s important to remember what those terms mean. In short, each name indicates where power from the engine is sent. That means that for a front-wheel drive car, the engine sends power to the front tires, and in a rear-wheel drive car it is sent to the rear tires. Since those wheels are getting the most power, they will wear faster than the others. If your car is a FWD or RWD vehicle, keep these tire rotation tips in mind:

  • Every 5,000 to 7,500 miles, a FWD or RWD vehicle’s tires need to be rotated. Be sure to consult your car’s manual for exact figures.
  • If you’re rotating the tires of a FWD vehicle yourself, make sure to flip sides when moving the rear tires. For example, the rear left tire will go on the front right. But, when you move the front tires to the back, keep them on the same side.
  • If it’s a RWD car, do the opposite of 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.
  • Keep in mind that how and where you drive can also affect when to rotate tires. For example, if you often drive off-road. The service experts at Marine Chevrolet will have good ideas for a maintenance schedule that fits your driving habits so make sure to ask.

What About for AWD Vehicles?

But what if you need to know how many miles to rotate tires on an AWD model? For these vehicles each tire wears differently, and at different speeds. According to experts, the standard time between tire rotations for an AWD model is around 3,000 to 5,000 miles. Of course, always check your owner’s manual for the exact numbers for your specific vehicle. If you’re not sure when you last had your tires rotated, don’t hesitate to schedule service at Marine Chevrolet near Sneads Ferry. We’ll perform an inspection of your car to see if you’re due for a rotation.

Is Rotating Tires Really That Important?

Now you know when to rotate tires, but you may be wondering why rotate them at all. Is it worth the trouble? Well, tire rotation is known to extend the life of your tires, which ultimately saves you money. Regular tire rotation also gives your vehicle additional benefits:

  • Improved traction on icy or slippery roads
  • Your car makes less noise while driving
  • Less stress is put on the drivetrain

If you want to be better prepared for hazardous weather around Sneads Ferry, it’s a good idea to have tire rotations as part of your maintenance plan. Of course, remember that just because you’re taking proper care for your tires that doesn’t mean they’ll last forever, only longer. If you’re in need of replacement, our tire center can help you out, and if you do buy your tires from Marine Chevrolet you’ll receive lifetime complimentary tire rotations for the life of the tire.
