Wondering how many miles to rotate tires? Typically a tire rotation has an interval of 5,000 to 7,500 miles. Keep in mind that this is just a ground rule, and for the exact figures on your specific model, you should refer to your vehicle’s owner’s manual. If you’re still wondering when to rotate tires, check out our handy guide from the trusted team at the Allen Turner Hyundai service center. Don’t hesitate to give us a call if you have any questions or need to schedule an appointment. 

Rotating Tires on FWD and RWD Vehicles

FWD and RWD deal with the designation of front-wheel and rear-wheel drive and where the power from the engine goes. With front-wheel drive vehicles, the power goes to the front tires, and it goes to the rear tires with rear-wheel drive models. The bulk of the tires getting the engine power will wear faster than the others. Keep these handy tire rotation tips in mind:

  • For FWD or RWD cars, tire rotations should be done every 5,000 to 7,500 miles.
  • If you’re performing a FWD tire rotation yourself, remember to flip sides when moving the rear tires. So, the rear right tire goes on the front left. However, when moving the front tires to the back, they stay on the same side.
  • When rotating tires on an RWD car, flip sides when moving the front tires to the back, but keep the rear tires on the same side when moving them forward.
  • Also, remember your driving style affects how often you rotate your tires. Speak with a service expert to learn more about when to rotate tires or for additional tips. 

AWD Tire Rotation Tips

With all-wheel drive (AWD) vehicles, they have a different tire rotation pattern than FWD or RWD vehicles. Because the power from your engine goes to every wheel when engaged with AWD, the rotation has to be done in a specific way and sooner. Most AWD tires should be rotated every 3,000 to 5,000 miles if you’re using AWD regularly on the Mobile, AL roads. Keep these tips when rotating your tires at home:

  1. The left rear goes to the right front spot.
  2. The right rear goes to the left front spot.
  3. The right front goes to the left rear spot.
  4. The left front goes to the right rear spot.

Why Rotate Tires?

Rotating your tires extends the life of your tires. Additional benefits include: 

  • Improved traction on slippery roads
  • Less noise on the road
  • Relieves unnecessary stress on the drivetrain

Stay better prepared in the event of hazardous weather or road conditions around Ft Walton and have your rotations part of your maintenance plan.
