How Often Should You Rotate Your Tires

Rotating car tires

When you really love driving your powerful Maserati on Rumson-area roads, you want to do everything possible to keep it in the best condition possible. Knowing when to rotate tires will help extend the life of your tires, put less stress on your drivetrain, give you better traction, and cut down on road noise. How often should you rotate your tires? Keep reading with Maserati of Central New Jersey to find out.

How Many Miles to Rotate Tires For

Most manufacturers recommend rotating your tires every six months or every 5,000-7,000 miles, depending on your driving habits in Deal. If you drive a vehicle with Q4 AWD, you’ll want to schedule rotation more frequently, once every 3,000 to 5,000 miles or so. Once you know how many miles to rotate tires for, you’ll see why many drivers choose to have their oil changes and tire rotations taken care of at the same time.

However, there are some factors that necessitate more frequent tire rotations. Those include driving on rugged roads outside Red Bank or pulling out all the stops on the local racetrack. Most tires require rotation once the tread variance is over 2/32 of an inch. If you notice a significant difference in the wear accruing to each tire, rotation could help to solve your problem.

How to Rotate Tires: Breakdown by Drivetrain

Knowing how often you should rotate your tires is important, but knowing how to rotate your tires requires a little extra research. If you’re thinking of performing a rotation at home, check the following guidelines:

  • For FWD, move the rear tires to the front and flip them. The left rear tire should go on the right front wheel. When you move the front tires to the back, keep them on the same side.
  • For RWD, move the front tires to the back and flip them. The left front should go on the right rear wheel. When you move the back tires to the front, keep them on the same side.

If you drive a vehicle with Q4 all-wheel drive, you should check your owner’s manual for your rotation pattern. Most will utilize an X-shaped pattern, where both the front and rear tires switch sides, but it never hurts to be certain.
