How Often Should You Rotate Your Tires?
Tire Care Tips Courtesy of Inver Grove Toyota

Since uneven tire wear can negatively impact your fuel economy and handling, drivers near Woodbury and St. Paul have to be able to answer the question: “How often should you rotate your tires?” For most, the answer will be: every 5,000 to 7,500 miles, or slightly more often if you drive an all-wheel drive vehicle. Although this is a safe general guideline, drivers who want to enjoy optimal performance should be sure to check their owner’s manual for details.

Before you finalize your vehicle’s maintenance schedule, you should note that other factors can have a big impact on how many miles to go before you rotate your tires. If you frequently go off-road, drive over rough terrain, or engage in heavy towing, you’ll want to contact our service experts for more information.

When to Rotate Tires: FWD, RWD, and AWD

If you want to know how often you should rotate your tires, the first thing you’ll need to do identify is your vehicle’s drivetrain. Your drivetrain might utilize front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, or all-wheel drive, and the main difference between the three consists in where the engine sends its power. All-wheel drive vehicles require tire rotation more frequently than FWD or RWD vehicles. This is true because, in all-wheel drive models, all tires wear down at different, unique rates. We recommend an interval of roughly 3,000 to 5,000 miles for AWD tire rotation.

If the difference in the depths of your treads is greater than 2/32 of an inch, you should rotate your tires as soon as possible.

DIY Tire Rotation Tips

With a little practice, rotating your tires at home can be a great way to save. The process requires you to remove each of your wheels and move them to another location, and the most common mistakes involve the rotation pattern that you employ to get through the process.

  • With FWD cars, the front tires should both be moved to the rear, and the rear tires should both be moved to the front. When you perform the latter step, move the rear left tire to the front right, and move the rear right tire to the front left.
  • With RWD cars, you’ll need to do exactly the opposite. Move the rear tires to the front without changing the side of the vehicle that they’re on. Then, move the front right tire to the rear left, and the front left tire to the rear right.
  • Since no two all-wheel drive vehicles are exactly alike, you’ll want to check with an expert to get the proper rotation pattern for you vehicle.

If you decide that you don’t have time to perform the process at home, don’t fret: Inver Grove Toyota can rotate your tires and get you back on the road in around an hour, thanks to our Toyota express maintenance service! We also offer tire alignment services and genuine Toyota replacement tires, so we’re a one-stop-shop for all of your tire care needs.

    Because of the work of your team, it was a non-issue.

I described it to several other people since then as a pit crew descending on the car. Again, I know how tough your business is and I assume, as is the case in ours, that you hear a lot more from unhappy customers than you do happy ones.
