How Often Should You Rotate Your Tires?

Toyota tire

A tire rotation typically has an interval of 5,000 to 7,500 miles. Keep in mind, however, that this is only a recommended rule to follow. Refer to your vehicle’s owner’s manual for the exact figures for your vehicle. If you’re still wondering when to rotate tires, we have you covered with this handy guide from the experts at Holman Toyota, your chosen Maple Shade-area trusted service center.


Rotating Tires on FWD and RWD Vehicles

Front- and rear-wheel drive means where the power from the engine is sent. For instance, front-wheel drive vehicles have the power sent to the front tires, and rear-wheel drive vehicles have it sent to the rear tires. This means that the set of tires that get the majority of the power wears out faster than others. Keep these tire rotation tips in mind when choosing between RWD and FWD Toyota vehicles:

  • Tire rotations on FWD or RWD need to be performed every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. Consult your owner’s manual for exact figures.
  • If you’re performing tire rotation on a FWD vehicle yourself, remember to flip sides when moving the rear tires. For example, the rear right tire now goes on the front left. However, when moving the front tires to the back, they should stay on the same side.
  • When doing a tire rotation on a RWD car, reverse the process above. Flip sides when moving the front tires to the back, but the rear tires remain on the same side when moving them forward.
  • Consider your driving habits. For instance, off-roading affects how often a tire rotation is needed. You can also speak with a service expert at Holman Toyota for additional information about a maintenance schedule that best fits your driving habits.

AWD Tire Rotation Tips

How many miles to rotate tires on an AWD model? All-wheel drive vehicles work a little differently, as each tire wears differently and at different speeds. Most Toyota experts recommend setting the standard timeline at 3,000 to 5,000 miles. Remember to always refer to your owner’s manual for exact numbers for your specific vehicle. If you’re not sure when you had your last tire rotation – that’s okay! Give us a call or schedule your service appointment online. We’ll inspect the tires to see if a rotation is needed.

Why Are Tire Rotations Important?

You know how often you should rotate your tires, but now, you’re probably wondering why they need to get rotated. Tire rotations extend the life of your tires. By doing regular tire rotations, your vehicle will enjoy these added benefits:

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

Make sure your vehicle is ready for any weather and road conditions around the Cherry Hill area, and be sure to add tire rotations as part of your maintenance plan.
