Wondering when to rotate tires on your vehicle? A good rule of thumb is to rotate your tires every 5,000 to 7,500 miles, but the exact figures for your model will be in your owner’s manual. Learn more specifics about after how many miles to rotate tires from Allen Samuels Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram below, your Nickerson-area trusted service center.

After How Many Miles To Rotate Tires on FWD & RWD Vehicles

How often should you rotate your tires on FWD and RWD vehicles? Front-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive designations indicate where the engine is sending power to push your vehicle. In either case, the tires that get the bulk of the engine power will wear faster than the others. Keep these tips in mind when you rotate tires on a FWD or RWD vehicle:

  • Your owner’s manual will have specifics, but generally, FWD or RWD cars require that their tires be rotated every 5,000 to 7,500 miles.
  • When rotating tires on a FWD vehicle, the front left tire goes to the back left spot, and the front right tire goes to the back right spot. However, the rear tires flip sides. In other words, the back left tire goes to the front right side, and the back right tire goes to the front left side.
  • Invert the above process when rotating tires on an RWD car. The back tires stay on their original sides when moved forward, but the front tires flip sides when moved back.
  • The service experts at Allen Samuels Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram can give you a better idea of how your driving habits in Buhler will affect your maintenance schedule. For example, if you often drive off-road, your tires will wear more quickly.

Rotating Tires on AWD Vehicles

On all-wheel-drive (AWD) models, your tires will need to be rotated differently from FWD or RWD vehicles. With AWD, your engine sends power to every wheel. This means you must rotate your tires in a specific way and more often. How often should you rotate your tires on an AWD vehicle in Newton? Every 3,000 – 5,000 miles.

Now that you know when to rotate tires, follow these tips to do so at home:

  1. The left rear goes to the right front spot.
  2. The right rear goes to the left front spot.
  3. The right front goes to the left rear spot.
  4. The left front goes to the right rear spot.

Why Should I Rotate My Tires?

Now you know when to rotate tires, but why should you? By rotating your tires, you extend their lifespan and give yourself several additional benefits:

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