The Importance of Tire Rotations

When you rotate your tires, you encourage equal wear on all four tires. When you have even tread wear, not only do you extend the life of your tires, you’ll get better fuel economy due to travelling more evenly. Most mechanics agree that you’ll want to have your tires rotated every 6,000-8,000 miles. It’s important to indicate the drivetrain of your vehicle as the directional pattern of tire rotation should be followed to ensure even wear. For example, a front-wheel drive vehicle doesn’t have its tires changed in the same rotation that a vehicle with rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive dows due to reliance on different areas.
