For many people, tires are an afterthought, that is until a problem occurs. There are many precautions you can take to extend the life of your tires, and that begins with a tire rotation. Not only does a tire rotation extend the life your tires, but it also improves performance. When you get a rotation, each tire moves to a different position to establish even wear. Depending if you have front or rear wheel drive, your tires move from the back to the front or vice versa. Not only do you move tires from back to front, with most alignments you change which side of the vehicle the tire is set. Typically, a tire rotation is needed every 5,000 to 8,000 miles. Rotational patterns and frequency largely depend on the vehicle type, so it’s best to check your owner’s manual.
