Because driving habits can vary, uneven tire wear is the result. Thanks to the impact they experience while turning, the outside edges of the front tires show greater wear while the rear wheels wear more evenly. If you never rotate your tires, you will end up having to replace them more frequently, which can be quite costly.
Front and rear-wheel drive vehicles should receive a tire rotation every 5,000-7,500 miles. This task should be performed more frequently for all-wheel drive vehicles because each tire is actively engaged at all times. Because of this, your vehicle should have a tire rotation every 3,000-5,000 miles. As with any vehicle service, we always recommend checking your owner’s manual for more specific recommendations.
Before you rotate your own tires, find a car jack, lug nut wrench, and a set of car jacks. If you have all of the proper tools, you can begin the process using these simple steps.
