How Often Should You Rotate Your Tires?

Tire Rotation


Staying up to date with your tire rotation schedule is an important part of keeping your Honda car, truck, or SUV running safely and smoothly on Gainesville and St. Augustine-area roads. So, how often should you rotate your tires? Experts recommend that tires should be rotated every 5,000 to 7,500 miles, but you should check your owner’s manual to find the specific tire rotation schedule for your make and model. Learn more about when to rotate tires in this guide from the service team at Honda of the Avenues.

Rotating Tires on FWD and RWD Vehicles

It may be obvious, but in a FWD vehicle, the engine sends power to the front wheels, and in a RWD vehicle, the engine sends power to the rear-wheels. Whichever pair of tires receives more power will experience more wear than the others. Having your tires rotated is a way to evenly distribute wear, which help maintain safe performance and extend the life of your tires. With either a FWD or RWD vehicle, keep these 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 figures.
  • If you are performing a FWD tire rotation yourself, flip sides when moving the rear tires to the front. For example, the rear right tire will go on the front left. When moving the front tires to the back, keep them on the same side.
  • When rotating tires on a RWD car, you invert the process above so that you’ll flip sides when moving the front tires to the back, but keep the rear tires on the same side when moving them forward.
  • How you drive and where you drive will affect how often you need to rotate your tires. The service experts at Honda of the Avenues will be happy to help you create a tire rotation and maintenance schedule that fits your driving habits.

How Many Miles to Rotate Tires on an AWD Vehicle

Wondering how many miles to rotate tires on an AWD model? Since all wheels can be engaged by the engine, each tire wears differently, and at different speeds. The recommended tire rotation schedule for AWD vehicles is between 3,000 to 5,000 miles, but, as always, check your owner’s manual to find the schedule for your specific vehicle. If you can’t remember the last time you performed a tire rotation, don’t hesitate to schedule service at Honda of the Avenues. Our certified technicians will inspect your tires to determine if you’re due for a rotation.

Why Rotate Tires?

Routinely rotating your tires has a number of significant benefits, including:

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

While tire rotations can improve safety and help to make your tires last longer, your tires will inevitably wear out over time. When they do, stop by the Honda of the Avenues Tire Center. We carry a wide variety of competitively priced tires from popular brands that are ideal for your Honda.
