How Often Should You Rotate Your Tires?

How often should you rotate your tires when commuting in the Hoover area each day? Most tire and auto manufacturers recommend rotating your tires approximately every 3,000 to 7,500 miles. Of course, it also depends if your vehicle is AWD, FWD, or RWD. Hendrick Chevrolet Hoover suggests that you review your owner’s manual for the specific guidelines for your Chevy. If you live near Birmingham and are still unsure how many miles to rotate tires or when to rotate tires, call the service center at Hendrick Chevrolet Hoover. In the meantime, you can learn more tips and information about tire rotation in our guide below!

Tire Rotation for RWD

If your car is rear-wheel drive, the rear wheels receive power and therefore typically wear out faster than the front tires do. Try to keep the following tire care and service tips in mind if you drive a RWD car around Vestavia Hills:

  • RWD vehicles should have their tires rotated about every 5,000 to 7,500 miles, or as suggested in your owner’s manual.
  • For a RWD car, move the rear tires directly to the front, then move the front tires to the rear, and be sure to switch sides (front right tire goes to the rear left, and front left tire goes to the rear right).

When to Rotate Tires On FWD Cars

If your new or pre-owned Chevy is a front-wheel-drive vehicle, it sends its power from the engine to the front wheels, which causes the front tires to wear out faster than the rear tires. Keep the following important tire rotation tips in mind if you own a FWD vehicle:

  • A front-wheel-drive vehicle generally should have the tires rotated approximately every 5,000 to 7,500 miles, or as recommended in your owner’s manual.
  • When you move the rear tires to the front, make sure you switch sides. For example, the rear left tire should be placed on the front right, but, when you move the front tires back, keep them on the same side.
  • If you often drive on rough roads in Bessemer or go off-road, you should rotate your tires more often. Call or visit Hendrick Chevrolet Hoover to develop a customized maintenance plan for your vehicle.

AWD Tire Rotation Tips

If you want to know when to rotate tires on an AWD vehicle, Hendrick Chevrolet Hoover can help. Tires on all-wheel-drive vehicles usually wear out differently, and because of that many auto specialists recommend rotating the tires every 3,000 to 5,000 miles to avoid uneven tread wear.

What to Do if You’re Not Sure When Your Tires Were Last Rotated

If you don’t know when you last rotated your tires, call our service team at 205-383-1619 or contact us online to schedule service. Our friendly technicians will check the tread wear on your tires to see if it’s time for tire rotation. Tires normally require replacement when the tread gets below 2/32 of an inch.
