Rotating your tires means moving them from one side of the vehicle to the other, moving them from front to back, or a combination of both. This helps avoid uneven tire wear, which can lead to poor performance and decreased gas mileage.
Goodyear considers regular tire rotations as basic tire maintenance and recommends you get your tires rotated every 3,000-6,000 miles (5,000km-10,000km).
Tires may wear differently depending on their position on the vehicle, your driving style, and the condition of your suspension. Regularly rotating your tires helps evenly distribute tire wear – helping you get the most miles out of your tires while maximizing traction on all four wheels. On front-wheel-drive vehicles, front tires tend to wear faster than rear tires due to added pressure/resistance from steering.
