First, you need a little more information about tire rotation. Rotating tires is when you move tires from one position to another. Typically, you would move the front tires to the back and the back tires to the front. Also, the left tires are moved to the right and the right tires are moved to the left. Rotating your tires ensure that the tires wear evenly and save you money in the long run. Some tire manufacturers require tire rotation to keep the warranty valid.

Tires should be rotated every 5,000 to 7,500 miles, but there are some exceptions. When tires wear evenly, it allows for balanced handling of your vehicle. If you have less tread on your front tires than your back and you have front wheel drive, this could make your vehicle difficult to control in bad weather. When tired wear unevenly, it can cause things like high road noise and vibration. If the tires’ tread variance is more than 2/32, they should be rotated more often.

Other things to keep in mind when it comes to tire rotation are front wheel drive wear the front tires quicker than the back because the front tires transfer power to the road and handle steering. Rear wheel drive has more balanced wear because the rear tires deliver power to the road, which the front tires steer.
