Time to rotate your tires?

How often should you rotate your tires?

A good time to rotate your tires is when you get the oil changed, assuming you do that at least once a year and more often if you drive, say, more than 10,000 miles annually.

Unless you drive fewer than about 7,500 miles per year, you should probably rotate tires every six months or so.

The tires mounted on the drive wheels of any vehicle perform extra duty because they apply the power to the pavement. On front-wheel-drive vehicles that is amplified by the weight of the engine and transmission, and because the front tires do most of the work in turns. Rotating the tires between front and rear a couple of times a year spreads out the burden so they wear evenly. Automakers that offer all-wheel-drive cars also recommend rotating tires. 

There are exceptions to these examples, particularly with performance models that may have different schedules for tire rotation. 

We suggest you follow the recommended schedule outlined in your owner's manual, but rotate the tires (and change the oil) at least once a year.
