When Should I Rotate My Tires?
Updated: Jun 8
Welcome back, DipStx blog readers! In today’s post, we’re covering the topic of tire rotations. When was the last time you had your tires rotated? If you can’t remember, it’s most likely time to give them a good rotation and check-up.
We come across a lot of people who aren’t sure when they need this done to their car. So, if you’re unsure, you’re not alone! Tire maintenance is a non-negotiable as a car owner so when in doubt, it’s best to have them looked over just to be sure if it’s been a while.
Most cars are looking at needing a tire rotation every 5,000 to 8,000 miles. However, every car is different, so this may not apply to your specific style of the vehicle itself. A good rule of thumb that we suggest is to get them rotated every other oil change, which is usually easier for folks to remember.
When we rotate the tires on your vehicle, we’re moving the rear tires to the front and the front tires to the rear, then doing a swap of the sides. By doing this, it helps the tires wear evenly to help extend their average mileage life under normal driving circumstances.
Tire rotations are vital for the safety of your vehicle and its balance, especially in rainy conditions.
