Most vehicle manufacturers recommend that you rotate your tires every 7,500 miles or six months. Some vehicles, however, are exceptions, and it is always wise to consult your owner’s manual. This figure varies based on how, where, and what you drive. Make it a habit to have your tires rotated every time you have your oil changed.
Tire rotation entails swapping the front and rear tires. This is critical because the drive tires (front tires in front-wheel drive vehicles) work harder than the others. These tires will wear out faster if you do not replace them. By rotating your tires, you distribute the load evenly over all four tires and ensure even wear. Take a peek at the tire rotation pattern below to see for yourself! Our professional technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care remove, switch, and remount your tires so they last longer and are safer to drive on.
