The tyres at the front of your vehicle often wear out faster than the ones at the back. By changing them frequently it helps them wear more evenly and lets you get the most out of their tread life.
Note: rotating your tyres won’t correct wear problems caused by incorrect inflation pressures.
How often do I need to rotate?
It’s a good idea to rotate your tyres roughly every 6,000 miles. There are other factors that may mean you need to rotate your tyres more frequently:
We recommend that you go to your dealer or a garage to have a professional do it.
But you can do it yourself, and it’s easy enough to do. You don’t need any specialist tools – just some space and a few hours.
Always check your vehicle owner’s manual for any recommendations by your vehicle manufacturer.
Things to consider if rotating yourself
You should only rotate tyres front-to-back if the tyres are all the same size.
Some vehicles come with different sized tyres on the front and rear axles.
When rotating tyres that have a directional tread pattern, make sure you follow the arrows on the tyre’s sidewall.
You’ll need to do this if your vehicle uses different-sized directional tyres, or wheels with different front and rear offsets.
