Tire rotation should be a regular practice of switching the position of each tire on the car.
The purpose of tire rotation will allow your tires to even tread wear and this is critical to the maximum life of your tire and will protect your investment.
Refer to your owner’s manual for the recommended rotation schedule and pattern; most tire warranties will require a rotation schedule of 5,000 miles. The rotation pattern varies with different makes and models. Some vehicles have different size tires on the front and back or directional tires. This limits the locations that a tire may take on the vehicle. If you have questions consult your tire dealer or check the owner’s manual. Tire rotation schedules also allows a good opportunity to have the tires and wheels balanced and other component pieces of your vehicle to be regularly inspected, just one more way of protecting your tire investment.
