If you have bought a set of new tires recently, there’s no doubt you will want to make them last as long as possible. The easiest thing you can do to help extend the life of your tires is scheduling regular tire rotations on your vehicle.

Front and rear tires wear differently when driven on; for example front tires carry more than 60% of your vehicles weight, so as a result they may wear down faster than rear tires. Rotating your tires on a regular basis with even out the wear patterns and allow you to drive on the same tires for a longer period of time.

Facts about Tire Rotation

Here are some quick facts about tire rotations:

  • Every tire has a certain rotation pattern based on the type of vehicle its being used on
  • Tires wear differently on all wheel drive vehicles, front wheel drive vehicles and rear wheel drive vehicles
  • Front wheel drive vehicles tend to need their tires rotated more frequently due to wearing when braking and the weight of the engine axle
