Tire rotation is the practice of moving the wheels and tires of an automobile from one position to another, to ensure even tire wear. Even tire wear is desirable to extend the useful life of a set of tires.
The weight on the front and rear axles differs which causes uneven wear. With the majority of cars having the engine in front, the front tires typically bear more weight than the rear tires. Front-wheel drive vehicles have not only the engine but also the transaxle in front, adding to the weight differential. Moreover, additional stress is placed disproportionately on the front tires by braking and steering. Thus, tire rotation needs to occur more frequently for front-wheel drive vehicles.
How do I know when to rotate my tires?
Car manufacturers will recommend tire rotation frequency and pattern. Tire rotation is often recommended every 5,000 mi (≈8,000 km) to 8,000 mi(≈13,000 km), however this will differ between tire manufacturers and car makers.
