How Often Should You Rotate Your Tires?

mechanic changing a car wheel.

How often should you rotate your tires? You might be surprised to learn how often we hear this question here at Jaguar North Scottsdale. You should be scheduling tire rotation once every 5,000 to 7,500 miles or so, but if it’s easier or more convenient, you can simply ask for this service each time you schedule your regular oil change at our service center near Scottsdale.

When all is said and done, opting for rotation once or twice a year can help to extend the lifespan of each tire, improve your fuel economy, and provide a more secure performance.

When to Rotate Tires: Guidelines for FWD vs. AWD

Since all-wheel drive models distribute power to all four wheels, you’ll want to schedule tire rotation more often if you drive one of these vehicles. In general, a guideline of roughly 3,000 to 5,000 miles is more appropriate than the recommendation given above.

Interested in rotating your tires at home? Although it’s usually quicker and easier to schedule service, you should know that front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, and all-wheel drive vehicles will all use unique rotation patterns. Your owner’s manual will likely have specific recommendations for your vehicle, and learning how to change a tire is far from difficult.

Understanding When to Rotate Tires

Knowing how many miles to rotate tires for is well and good, but what if you don’t remember when your last rotation took place? Why should you be rotating your tires in the first place? If you really want to understand when tire rotation is required, here’s what you should keep in mind:

  • Tires wear down unevenly for a variety of factors. The most important factors to consider are how your drivetrain distributes power, and how you handle the vehicle when you’re behind the wheel.
  • It’s a good idea to check your tire tread depth regularly. If there are significant differences (greater than 2/32 of an inch) between two or more of your tires, it’s definitely time to schedule tire rotation, even if you haven’t driven 5,000 miles or more.
  • If you tend to do a lot of heavy lifting with your vehicle, it may be prudent to schedule tire rotation more often. Ask a representative how towing or performance driving will impact recommendations for your vehicle.
