How Often Should You Rotate Your Tires?

Mechanic with Tires

Your vehicle’s tires need to stay on the road to keep your family safe. Over time, they do get worn and you need to replace them. Rotating your tires periodically can help extend their life while maintaining your vehicle’s handling and traction in any conditions, wet or dry, pavement or dirt. Find out how often you should rotate your tires from the friendly staff at Tom's Ford in Keyport.

See the Owner’s Manual for When to Rotate Your Tires

The first place Red Bank Ford owners should check is their vehicle manual. Look for the maintenance schedule to see what the manufacturer recommends for a regular tire rotation. For most FWD or RWD cars, we recommend a tire rotation every 5,000 to 7,000 miles. If you drive an average of 10,000 to 15,000 miles a year, then that means once every six months. For AWD, we recommend rotating tires every 3,000 to 5,000 miles because of the automatic shifts in power from one set of wheels to the other. When you bring your AWD vehicle in for an oil change, we’ll recommend a tire rotation, too.

How Often You Rotate Your Tires Also Depends on Driving Conditions

Driving conditions may also determine how often you should rotate your tires because harsh, off-road, or less-than-ideal driving conditions can cause more wear on your tires. If you drive 50 miles every day, you might need to come in for a tire rotation service sooner than six months.

Rotate Your Tires Before Off-Roading or Taking a Long Trip

Heading away from Keyport and spending a day at the shore in your F-150? Taking the family on a road trip in your Escape? Bring your vehicle in for service before you go, and we’ll rotate the tires. When our friendly technicians rotate your tires, we do more than just switch them from front to back. We’ll look at the tread wear and suggest when you should buy new ones. We’ll also look at the tires, brakes, and undercarriage to see if we notice anything that needs maintenance soon.
