How Often Should You Rotate Your Tires?

Mechanic with Tires
Knowing when to rotate the tires on your Honda will not only help to ensure that you enjoy smooth and safe driving on Irvine-area roads, it can also help extend the life of your tires. How often should you rotate your tires? It is recommended that you have your tires rotated every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. However, it’s always a good idea to check your owner’s manual to find the specific tire rotation schedule for your make and model. The experts in the Service Center at Weir Canyon Honda are here to fill you in on how many miles to rotate tires and provide a few tire rotation tips to help make sure that you get the most out of your car’s tires.

Rotating Tires on FWD and RWD Vehicles

Front-wheel drive indicates that the engine power is delivered to the front tires, while rear-wheel drive means that the power is sent to the rear tires. The tires that receive direct power from the engine tend to wear faster than the others. Rotating the tires ensures that they will wear evenly and last longer. With either a FWD or RWD vehicle, keep the following tire rotation tips in mind.

  • For FWD or RWD cars, tire rotation should be performed every 5,000 to 7,500 miles, but consult your owner’s manual for exact recommendations.
  • When performing a FWD tire rotation, the rear tires will need to flip sides when they are moved to the front. For example, the rear right tire will go on the front left and the rear left tire on the front right. When moving the front tires to the back, keep them on the same side.
  • To rotate tires on a RWD car, invert the process above. Flip sides when moving the front tires to the back, but keep the rear tires on the same side when moving them forward.
  • How often should you rotate your tires? It depends on how and where you drive. The certified service technicians at Weir Canyon Honda can help you determine a tire rotation and maintenance schedule that fits your driving habits.

AWD Tire Rotation Tips

With the Honda AWD system, all four tires can be engaged by the engine, which causes each tire to wear differently and at different speeds. Generally, you should have your AWD tires rotated every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. Make sure to check your owner’s manual to find out what is recommended for your specific vehicle. If you are unsure whether or not to have your tires rotated you should schedule a service appointment at Weir Canyon Honda. Our professional auto techs will inspect your tires to see if you’re due for a rotation.

Why Rotate Tires?

Along with regularly checking the tire tread depth and refilling your tires when the TPMS light alerts you, knowing when to rotate tires and how many miles you can drive before a tire rotation will help to maintain your safety on Yorba Linda-area roads. Other benefits of routine tire rotations include:

  • Reduced stress on the drivetrain
  • Improved traction on slippery roads
  • Less noise from the wheels and tires when driving
  • Helps to extend the lifespan of your tires

With proper tire care, drivers from Tustin and beyond can enjoy a smooth and safe ride while getting the most out of their tires.
