How Often Should You Rotate Your Tires?

Has it been a while since you last had your tires rotated? Not sure when to rotate tires? Usually, the rule of thumb is to have your tires rotated around every 5,000-7,000 miles, but you can find more specific numbers in your vehicle’s owner’s manual. If you’re not sure about how many miles to rotate tires on your vehicle or if you’re due for a rotation, then check out the handy guide put together by the service center at Nyle Maxwell Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram that’s all about tire rotation. Then, feel free to visit our service center to get your tires rotated and get back on the Round Rock roads in no time. 



Importance of Tire Rotation

Before we discuss when to rotate tires, let’s talk a little bit about why you should rotate your tires in the first place. Because tires wear unevenly, rotating your tires will extend the lifespan of your tires. However, there are also plenty of other benefits to rotating your tires, including: 

  • Less noise on your Cedar Park commute
  • Less stress on the drivetrain
  • Improved traction on slick road conditions

FWD and RWD Tire Rotation

How often should you rotate your tires? While the general rule of thumb is 5,000-7,000 miles, you’ll want to consult your owner’s manual as different vehicles require different tire rotation frequencies. One factor that affects tire rotation frequency is the drivetrain. Here are some things to consider when rotating tires on a FWD or RWD vehicle:

  • For FWD tire rotation, you’ll want to be sure to switch the sides of the tires when you rotate them. So, the rear right tire will go to the front left side, but the front tires will remain on the same side when they are placed on the rear. 
  • For RWD vehicles, you’ll do the opposite as with FWD vehicles. Switch sides when moving the front tires to the rear, and keep the rear tires on the same side when moving them up to the front. 
  • Your driving Georgetown habits will affect how often and when to rotate tires. 

AWD Tire Rotation 

Not sure how many miles to rotate tires on AWD vehicles? Most experts recommend rotating tires on AWD vehicles around every 3,000-5,000 miles. However, since AWD vehicles work differently than other vehicles, each tire will wear differently and at different rates, so you’ll want to consult your owner’s manual. If you’re unsure of the last time you had your tires rotated, then schedule a visit with our service center at Nyle Maxwell Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Austin to see if you’re due for a rotation.
