How Often Should You Rotate Your Tires?

Rotating tires

When it comes to maintaining your tires, one crucial aspect to consider is how often to rotate them. Typically, it is recommended to rotate your tires every 5,000 to 8,000 miles. However, it is important to note that these estimates can vary depending on factors such as your vehicle type and driving habits. For instance, frequent tire rotations may be necessary if you frequently go on longer commutes or off-road on rough terrains. Below we’ve put together a guide on how often to rotate your tires.

At How Many Miles to Rotate Tires

Determining the exact mileage and when to rotate your tires depends on several factors, primarily the type of vehicle you drive and whether it has front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, or all-wheel drive. Let’s dive into at how many miles to rotate tires based on your powertrain.

FWD & RWD: Tire Rotation

Front-wheel drive (FWD) and rear-wheel drive (RWD) vehicles distribute engine power to their respective sets of wheels, causing uneven tire wear. Keep the following tips in mind for your front-wheel or rear-wheel drive Blazer, Trax, or any other model:

  • Mileage Interval: Rotate tires every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. Consult your owner’s manual for precise figures.
  • Rotation Process: When rotating tires in a front-wheel drive vehicle, switch sides while moving the rear tires forward. For rear-wheel drive vehicles, invert the process.
  • Consider Your Driving Habits: Off-roading or towing in Eagan and Woodbury areas affects rotation frequency. Discuss with our service team at Mauer Chevrolet for an optimal schedule.

AWD: Tire Rotation

All-wheel drive (AWD) vehicles require tire rotations every 3,000 to 5,000 miles due to power distribution to all four wheels. Follow this pattern for proper rotation:

  • Rear to Front: Move the left rear tire to the right front position and the right rear tire to the left front position.
  • Front to Rear: Move the right front tire to the left rear position and the left front tire to the right rear position.
