Why is Tire Rotation Important?

The tires on your vehicle don’t wear evenly on Marlton roads. The outside edges of the front tires wear down faster than rear wheels because of the impact they suffer while turning. Rotating your front and rear tires allow all four tires to wear down at similar rates, giving them a longer lifespan.

How to Rotate Tires at Home

Knowing how to rotate tires at home only requires a few supplies that you probably already have: a car jack, lug nut wrench, and jack stands. Follow the steps below:

  1. First, engage your parking brake.
  2. On all four wheels, loosen the lug nuts, but not all the way off.
  3. With the car jack, lift up one wheel and then place the jack stand underneath it
  4. Remove the tires and fill them to the appropriate level
  5. Rotate the tires according to the pattern designated for your type of tires. Check your owner’s manual or contact the service department at Holman Toyota.
  6. Put the tire back onto the wheel mound and screw the lugnuts on by hand
  7. Lower the car back to the ground and tighten the lug nuts with the wrench evenly. If not, the brake rotor could warp.

How Often Should Tires Be Rotated?

For every 5,000-7,500 miles driven in Cherry Hill, your front- and rear-wheel drive vehicle’s tires should be rotated. All-wheel drive vehicles need to be rotated more often, usually between 3,000-5,000 miles, since all tires are engaged evenly, resulting in faster wear. Again, check with your owner’s manual to see when your tires need to be rotated.
