How Often To Have Your Tires Rotated
We’ve been around for a while, and with that experience we’ve learned a few things about tire maintenance. One important part of keeping your tires in good shape is having them rotated. This process ensures that your tires wear evenly, which increases their life span.
Unfortunately, this isn’t usually something you can do on your own, so you’ll need to seek out professional help. The good news is, almost every auto shop and car dealer can do it, so you can probably find a location that’s convenient for you.
We recommend that you get your tires rotated every 5,000 to 7,000 miles, or about every six months. The best way to rotate your tires is a “cross-rotation pattern.” This means moving the left-front tire to the right-rear axle, the right-front tire to the left-rear axle and so on.
Just like your vehicle requires maintenance, so do your tires. Having your tires rotated regularly will ensure that your tires last as long as possible, saving you time and money. Failure to rotate your tires also means losing any warranty perks that your tires come with, so make sure you stay on top of your game so you can take advantage of long tire life and warranty coverage.
