Why Do I Need to Get My Tires Rotated?
Over time, your tires will wear differently based on your drivetrain. For example, front-wheel drive vehicles have most of the weight at the front. Therefore, the front tires will wear much quicker than those in the back. To make your tires wear more evenly, you will need to get your tires rotated. Cars with rear-wheel drive are the opposite of front-wheel drive in which the back tires will wear a bit quicker. All-wheel drive and four-wheel drive vehicles will wear much differently as it depends on the terrain you drive on.
How Often Should I Get a Tire Rotation?
Ideally, every driver should get a tire rotation every six months or every 7,500 miles. Doing so will help keep your tires lasting a long time before you need to buy new ones.
