How Often Should You Rotate Your Tires?

Mechanic with Tires

By rotating your tires you ensure that they wear evenly and last as long as possible on Mamaroneck roads. How often should you rotate your tires? The rule of thumb is to do so every 5,000- to 7,500 miles, but exact figures vary from model to model. That’s why you should always check your owner’s manual for specifics. Keep reading to learn more details from the BMW of Mamaroneck service center.

How to Rotate Tires on FWD and RWD Vehicles

Designations like FWD, RWD, and AWD indicate which wheels the engine powers directly. For example, front-wheel drive cars have directly powered front-wheels. On any car in Harrison or beyond, the tires getting the majority of the engine power will wear faster. Keep these tips in mind should you need to rotate the tires on your FWD or RWD vehicle: 

  • Your owners manual will have exact figures for when to rotate your tires. Expect somewhere between 5,000 to 7,500 miles.
  • If rotating tires on a front-wheel drive vehicle be sure to flip the rear tires when you move them to the front. In other words, take the rear left tire, and bring it to the front right side and take the rear right tire and bring it to the front left side. The front tires can stay on their original sides when you move them to the rear.
  • If rotating tires on a rear-wheel drive vehicle, reverse the above process. In other words, flip the front tires when you move them to the rear and keep the rear tires on the same sides when you move them to the front. 
  • Activities like off-roading will affect how often you need to rotate your tires. Consult our tire center to get a better idea of a maintenance schedule that fits your lifestyle.

How to Rotate Tires on AWD Vehicles

If your vehicle is an all-wheel drive model, then your tires will need to be rotated more frequently. This is because power is sent to all of the tires, instead of just one set. Usually, AWD tires need to be rotated every 3,000-5,000 miles. Learn how to do it at home below: 

  1. The left rear goes to the right front spot.
  2. The right rear goes to the left front spot.
  3. The right front goes to the left rear spot.
  4. The left front goes to the right rear spot.
