How Often Should You Rotate Your Tires?

Tire Rotation

How often should you rotate your tires? Most tires need to be rotated every 5,000 to 7,500 miles — but keep in mind that the right figure for your vehicle depends on several factors. You’ll want to note whether your vehicle is FWD or AWD, and check your manual for the manufacturer’s guidelines on how many miles to rotate tires. Another thing to consider is your driving habits, because the surfaces you drive on most will affect the level of wear on your tires. Read on for our comprehensive overview of when to rotate your tires.

When to Rotate Tires on FWD and RWD Vehicles

Front tires wear faster on front-wheel drive vehicles because the engine is sending power only to the front wheels. As you’d expect, rear wheels wear out faster on rear-wheel drive vehicles. You’ll need to rotate the tires on your car accordingly to make sure each tire wears equally. Keep this rotation schedule in mind when it’s time to rotate your tires:

  • Remember that a FWD or RWD car will need its tires rotated every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. As you approach 5,000 like, check your owner’s manual for the exact figure for your vehicle.
  • If you’re going to perform the rotation yourself, move the left rear tire to the right front, and the right rear tire to the left front. Then move the front tires to the back, but keep them on the same side.
  • For a RWD car, simply flip the process. Move the front tires directly back, then move the back tires forward and switch sides.
  • If you regularly drive on rough roads, you may want to rotate your tires more often. Make a trip to our service center so we can help you develop a custom rotation plan!

How Often to Rotate Tires on AWD Vehicles

Your Jaguar maintenance schedule will be a bit different for all-wheel drive vehicles. With power going to all four tires, wear will occur more quickly across the board. Many experts recommend rotating AWD vehicle tires every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. Again, you’ll want to check your owner’s manual for specific vehicle recommendations.  If you’re not sure how long it’s been since your last tire rotation, you can always schedule service at Jaguar Chandler. We’ll check tread wear differences to see if it’s time for a rotation. Most tires require rotation once the tread variance is over 2/32 of an inch.

Why Keep a Rotation Schedule?

There are some important reasons you should stay on top of a regular rotation schedule. Of course, your tires will last longer on those Chandler roads — but you’ll get additional benefits throughout the vehicle:

  • Less stress on the drivetrain
  • Better traction on slippery roads
  • Quieter road noise
