How Often Should You Rotate Your Tires?

tires

Rotating tires is crucial to the overall life of your tires, as it spreads out the wear and tear across all four tires. Having tires rotated on a regular basis will make your vehicle safer and ensure that you don’t have to replace them as often, which will save you money. But exactly how often should you rotate your tires? When to rotate tires depends on whether your vehicle employs an all-wheel drivetrain. If so, you will want to rotate tires every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. Recommendations differ for all other vehicles, depending on whom you ask, but the service staff at Leson Chevrolet near Metairie recommends every 6,000 to 8,000 miles, or every six months.

How Do I Rotate Tires On My AWD Vehicle?

Don’t! There’s more involved here than knowing how often you should rotate your tires. Each tire on an all-wheel drive vehicle wears differently, making rotation more complex. So, this should be done by a professional. But, don’t worry, the tire experts at Leson Chevrolet (located near Harvey) will be happy to help. You can even schedule an appointment online.
