How Often Should You Rotate Tires?

Tires stored on a blue rack

Most tire and automobile manufacturers recommend rotating the tires every 3,000 to 7,500 miles, but it will vary depending on whether your vehicle is FWD, AWD, or RWD.  You should always consult your owner’s manual for specific information on your vehicle. If you’re in Cincinnati and still unsure how many miles to rotate tires, Land Rover Cincinnati can help. We are your reliable tire source and will answer all of your questions.

When to Rotate Tires on FWD

A vehicle that is a front-wheel-drive sends its power from the engine to the front wheels and that causes the front tires to wear faster than the rear ones. Keep the following tire rotation info in mind if you own a FWD vehicle in the Mason area.

  • A FWD generally needs its tires rotated every 5,000 to 7,500 miles, or as recommended in your owner’s manual.
  • If you’re doing the FWD tire rotation yourself, when you move the rear tires to the front, make sure to flip sides. For example, the rear left tire should be placed on the front right, but when you move the front tires back, keep them on the same side.
  • If you regularly drive on rough roads around Cincinnati, you may want to rotate your tires more quickly. Visit Land Rover Cincinnati to get a custom maintenance plan that suits your unique needs.

Tire Rotation for RWD

With a rear-wheel drive vehicle, the rear wheels receive power and therefore wear out faster than the front tires. Try to keep the following tips in mind if you own a RWD.

  • RWD cars will need the tires rotated every 5,000 to 7,500 miles, or as recommended in the owner’s manual.
  • For a RWD car, move the front tires directly back, then move the back tires forward and be sure to switch sides.

AWD Tire Rotation Tips

If you live around Fort Mitchell, KY and are wondering when to rotate tires on an AWD Model, Land Rover Cincinnati is your resource. Tires on all-wheel-drive vehicles wear differently, and because of that many experts recommend rotating them every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. What if you’re not sure when your tires were last rotated?

If you don’t know how long it’s been since your last tire rotation, schedule service at Land Rover Cincinnati. We’ll check the treadwear differences on your tires to see if it’s time for a rotation. Typically, tires require rotation once the tread variance is beyond 2/32 of an inch.

Why Rotate Tires?

  • Less stress on the drivetrain
  • Better traction when driving on slippery roads
  • Less road noise
  • A smoother ride
