How often should I rotate my tires?
Tires are responsible for getting us from place to place. Did you know that tires wear differently based on where they are positioned on your vehicle? The engine is the heaviest part and in the front of your vehicle, so your front tires tend to wear faster than the back tires. It is important to rotate your tires because this helps them wear evenly and last longer. How often should I rotate my tires? The typical answer is every 5,000-8,000 miles, but there are a variety of answers based on the make and model of your vehicle. Keep reading to learn more!
When do I need to rotate my tires?
There are a few factors that play into when you should rotate your tires. Some of them include the type of vehicle that you have, the type of tires that you have, and how many miles you put on your vehicle in a year. A good general rule of thumb is to rotate your tires every other oil change or every 5,000 – 8,000 miles. Your vehicles owner’s manual can also offer some extra guidance as to when you should rotate your tires.
What should I look for if it has been a while since I have rotated my tires?
First, check out the wear on your tires. Do they all look the same? Are some worn more on the inside or outside than others? If they do not look the same, it would be a good idea to have your tires rotated. Another thing to pay attention to is if your vehicle makes a weird vibration. If so, it might be because your tires have worn unevenly, and they need to be rotated. Finally, if one tire is losing air pressure, that might be a sign it has been worn unevenly.
