Front-wheel drive (FWD) vehicles put a lot of demand on your front tires as they accelerate, steer and help your vehicle come to a complete stop. So, naturally, they will wear down faster than your rear tires, which will typically last twice as long as your front-wheel tires. Having your tires rotated frequently will assist with evening out the wear-and-tear by letting each wheel serve in as many of your vehicle’s wheel positions as possible.
Know when to rotate your tires
How often should you have your tires rotated? First, it’s important to make sure your wheels are being serviced periodically, regardless of whether or not they’re also rotated at that time. Ultimately, you can learn more about you car’s rotation patterns in the owner’s manual, however, we recommend you have your wheels rotated every 4,000 to 6,000 miles – every six months – even if your tires aren’t showing signs of wear. And, ideally, you should replace all four tires at the same time.
How tire rotation differs from tire alignment
Tire alignment, or wheel alignment, is necessary once your vehicle begins to show signs of misalignment, such as pulling to one side or the other, uneven tire wear, or having a crooked steering wheel when you’re driving straight.
