Why Tire Rotation is Important
Rotating your tires means moving them from front to rear or side to side. This maintenance task is critical to your tires’ performance and longevity. It may also be required to keep the tires covered under a warranty.
The vehicle manufacturer will recommend how often the tires need to be rotated, but often it is around 5,000 miles. This task is often done when the oil is changed as an add-on service.
When the technician rotates your tires, they take the time to look at them. A visual inspection can alert you to any damage, such as a knot or worn tread. The technician will also check air pressure and get the tires rebalanced if they need it.
When tires are rotated regularly, it allows the tread to wear evenly. The tire grips the road as it should for better traction if the wear is even. How the tires wear depends on whether the vehicle is front- or rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. The tires that are doing the most work will wear fastest.
Not all vehicles have their tires rotated the same way. There are several patterns that the technician can use. They will decide which one works best based on the wear pattern and drive of the vehicle.
Tires are often rotated from the front to the rear and vice versa. The tires may be placed on the other side, such as is with a crisscross pattern. Often either the front or rear cross with the other set moving in a straight pattern.
In an X-pattern, both front and rear wheels will cross each other. They may also switch in a direct line or move from one side to the other. In some cases, only the front or rear tires are rotated with the other set remaining in the same position.
