Man Performing Tire Rotation

Taking care of your tires is an absolute must, so you may be wondering, is tire rotation necessary? The answer is yes. Rotating your tires helps them wear evenly and last longer, which saves money.

How to Rotate Tires

The exact pattern for rotating your tires depends on your specific vehicle, but for an average front-wheel-drive car, you should move the front tires to the rear on the same side and the rear tires to the front on the opposite side. If your front and rear tires are different sizes, they should be moved to the opposite side. Directional tires need to stay on the same side.

How Often to Rotate Tires

It’s a good idea to rotate your tires every time you change your oil, but check your owner’s manual to see what service intervals are required.
