How Often Should You Rotate Your Tires?

Changing a wheel

You’ve finished your oil change and you’ve replaced the air filter in your car, but is it time to rotate your tires as well? When you’re performing maintenance on your Toyota vehicle in Irving, you may be wondering how often you should rotate your tires. Generally, you should rotate your tires every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. However, you may need to rotate your tires more often depending on how you use your vehicle and what kind of drivetrain you have. Read along with Toyota of Irving as we explain when to rotate your tires and what tire rotation tips we have to offer. Questions? Contact us and we’ll help you with any of your car maintenance needs!


Rotating Tires on RWD and FWD Cars

You may have noticed in your Toyota vehicle’s owner’s manual that your car has front-wheel drive (FWD) or rear-wheel drive (RWD). This simply means the power from your engine is sent to either the front or rear tires when you drive your car in Dallas. The set of tires getting the engine power will wear faster than the others, meaning you will have to rotate them regularly to avoid improper wear. If you’re wondering how many miles to rotate your tires or if it’s time to rotate your RWD or FWD tires, keep these tips in mind:

  • Rotate your tires every 5,000 – 7,500 miles for FWD or RWD cars.
  • When you rotate FWD tires, switch sides when moving the rear tires (i.e. the rear left tire will go on the front right). However, keep the front tires on the same side when you move them to the back.
  • If you’re rotating tires on a RWD car, flip the above process. Switch sides when moving the front tires to the back, but keep the rear tires on the same side when you move them forward.

AWD Tire Rotation

If you drive a vehicle that has all-wheel drive (AWD) or four-wheel drive (4WD), then you’ll need to rotate your tires more often. Since every tire is receiving power from the engine on these models, each tire will wear differently and at different speeds. Off-road enthusiasts and Fort Worth workers who want to know when to rotate AWD tires will need to do so every 3,000 – 5,000 miles instead. However, if you should always check your owners manual to see how many miles to rotate your tires if you want specific information. 


Why Should I Rotate My Tires?

If you’re wondering when to rotate your tires or why you should rotate your tires, Toyota of Irving has the answers for you! Many Grapevine mechanics and websites will tell you that rotating your tires will extend their life. However, you’ll also have improved traction on icy or slippery roads, you’ll experience less noise while driving, and you’ll relieve unnecessary stress from your drivetrain. In order to keep your Toyota running smoothly, it’s important to have tire rotation as part of your maintenance routine.
