Tire Rotation

Find out how often to get your tires rotated and what to expect from a tire rotation service. 

WHAT IS A TIRE ROTATION?

A tire rotation involves moving your tires from one position on your vehicle to another to help evenly distribute tire wear. Most tire rotation services will move the two front tires to the back and the two back tires to the front. Occasionally, depending on the type of tires you have, they will also switch sides. For example, the front right tire could become the back left tire.

During a tire rotation service, technicians will lift your car off the ground, remove each tire and re-install them in their new positions. We will also input the new tire locations into your vehicle’s onboard computer if so equipped.

Why do I need to rotate my tires?

It’s important to rotate tires at regular intervals, as routine tire rotation helps prevent uneven tire wear. A tire’s tread is where the rubber meets the road—literally. When driving, the tire tread provides traction and grip. Over time, tire tread gradually begins to wear.

If you never rotate the tires on your car, they will develop uneven tread wear. When you drive, your front tires experience more stress, as they are primarily responsible for steering and turning the car. By regularly rotating the tires, the wear is spread out evenly and extends the life of all four tires. In addition to increasing the longevity of your tires, regular tire rotations will offer better overall driving performance and may even help fuel efficiency in some situations.

How often should I rotate my tires?

The general rule of thumb is that tires should be rotated around every 5,000 miles, but no more than 7,500 miles. This could vary slightly based on your driving habits and your typical road conditions. Paying attention to how your tire tread looks and how your tires handle turns and wet conditions can help you recognize when a tire rotation may be needed.

Without regular tire rotations, you risk several tire problems, the worst of them being a blowout or tire failure. Tread is also part of what prevents a vehicle from hydroplaning (aquaplaning), or losing traction when water is present on the road surface. Help ensure the safety of your vehicle and the safety of your passengers with regular tire rotations, tire tread depth checks and complimentary tire inspections.
