How Often Should You Rotate Your Tires?

Just how often should you rotate your tires for the best performance on the Cedar Park roads? For most makes and models, you should schedule your service around every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. However, it’s a good idea to check your owner’s manual for more specific guidelines. Depending on your drivetrain and commute, you might need to move up your service a little earlier. FInd out when to rotate your tires with Nyle Maxwell GMC, and swing by Round Rock for your next routine maintenance appointment!

 

 

Why Rotate Tires?

Before we go into how often you should rotate your tires, let’s talk about why you should rotate your tires in the first place. Tire rotations offer benefits like:

  • Longer lifespan for your set
  • Improved traction on slippery roads
  • Less noise on the road
  • Less stress on the drivetrain

When to Rotate Tires: FWD and RWD Vehicles

Before you determine how often you should rotate your tires, it’s important to identify your drivetrain type. Front-wheel drive is the most common, which means the engine sends power to the front wheels. Rear-wheel drive keeps the bulk of the power on the rear wheels. This can have a big impact on your tire care.

  • For both FWD and RWD cars, we recommend following the 5,000 to 7,500-mile general guidelines – but read your owner’s manual for more information.
  • FWD and RWD have different tire rotation patterns. On a FWD model, move the front tires directly to the back. When you move the rear tires to the front, swap sides.
  • On a RWD model, move the rear tires directly to the front. When you move the front tires to the back, swap sides.
  • More strenuous driving, like off-roading, will cause more wear and tear to your vehicle. Consider moving up your maintenance or calling our service center to find out exactly how many miles to rotate your tires.

When to Rotate Tires: AWD Vehicles

Not sure how many miles to rotate tires on an AWD model? AWD cars are different because every tire wears at different speeds. That means you’ll need to get your tires rotated around 3,000 to 5,000 miles instead. And just like FWD and RWD, you should visit the service center earlier if you take part in off-roading or towing around Austin.
