How often should you rotate your tires? Typically tires are rotated every 5,000 to 7,500 miles, but when to rotate tires depends on a number of factors. To know what your tire rotation interval is for sure, take a look at your owner’s manual. Still wondering about when to rotate tires? Our team at our Woodway-area service department at Douglass Nissan of Waco has laid out a guide to help you learn more about how often should you rotate your tires!

Rotating Tires on FWD and RWD Vehicles

How often you should rotate tires depends on your drivetrain layout. The way your tires are rotated and the interval in which you rotate them. Take a look at our tire rotation tips below to learn more:

  • For FWD or RWD cars, you should rotate your tires every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. However, check your owner’s manual for exact figures.
  • For RWD tire rotations, flip sides when moving the front tires to the back, but keep the rear tires on the same side when moving them forward.
  • If you’re performing a FWD tire rotation yourself, be sure to flip sides when moving the rear tires to the front. For example, the rear right tire will go on the front left. However, when moving the front tires to the back, keep them on the same side.
  • If you enjoy frequent spirited drives, off-roading, or other adverse driving conditions, be sure to talk with the service experts at Douglass Nissan of Waco to see how often to rotate your tires.

AWD Tire Rotation Tips

Are you wondering how many miles to rotate tires on an AWD model? Because different AWD systems split power to all four wheels in different ways at different times, it’s hard to give one specific number. Our experts would recommend rotating tires every 3,000 to 5,000 miles on an AWD car. Again, you should always check your owner’s manual for your exact interval.
