How Often Should You Rotate Your Tires?

Chevy Mechanic Working on Tires

Your tires might not be the most important part of your vehicle, but Sterling Heights drivers shouldn’t discount what tires can do for their vehicle. When it comes to how many miles to rotate tires, typically, you’ll want to wait 5,000 to 8,000 miles for the interval of when to rotate tires, although your owner’s manual might tell you something different. You’ll also want to schedule service with Moran Chevrolet, Inc. because we’ve got tire experts who can get your vehicle back on the road in no time flat.

When to Rotate Tires on FWD and RWD Vehicles

There are two different tire rotation patterns for FWD and RWD vehicles. The difference between these two drivetrains is which two tires get the power, front tires and rear tires for each, respectively. This means that if you have this drivetrain, Macomb Township drivers will see one side of their tires wear down faster than the other. This is how you rotate your tires:

  • If you’ve got a FWD vehicle, flip sides when moving the rear tires to the front. This means your old rear right is your new front left. However, when going from front to back, don’t switch sides.
  • If you’re rotating tires on a RWD car, do the opposite. You’ll want to flip sides when going from front to back, but keep the rear tires the same as you move them to the front.

When to Rotate Tires: AWD Tire Rotation Tips

If you’re an AWD driver, you’ll want to change the rotation pattern differently. You’ll also want to rotate every 3,000 to 5,000 miles, more often than you would with FWD or RWD. This is the rotation pattern.

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