How Often Should You Rotate Your Tires?
Wondering when to rotate tires on your vehicle? The general rule is every 5,000 to 7,000 miles, though it’s a good idea to also check your owner’s manual to see what’s specified for your exact car, truck, or SUV. When your tires are due for a rotation, will you do it yourself or schedule an appointment with your local Bloomington service center?
Why Rotate Tires?
While this may be an optional service, it’s highly recommended to include tire rotations in your routine maintenance plan. Switching the position of your tires from time to time promotes more even wear, which increases their lifespan. Rotating your tires also helps ensure you have proper traction and reduces the stress on your engine as your drive around Normal.
How Many Miles to Rotate Tires?
If you drive a front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive vehicle, you can follow the general rule of 5,000 to 7,000 miles. If you drive a vehicle with all-wheel drive, you’ll want to rotate your tires more frequently — every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. If you’re doing your own tire rotation on your FWD or RWD vehicle in the Morton area, here’s what to know:
- FWD Vehicles: Move the back tires forward on the opposite side, bringing the back right tire to the front left side. Move the front tires directly back, with the front right tire moving to the back right side.
- RWD Vehicles: Move the front tires back to the opposite side, bringing the front left tire to the back left side. Move the back tires directly forward, bringing the back left tire to the front left side.
