How Often Should You Rotate Your Tires?


An important part of keeping your vehicle running safely on Asheville streets is knowing when to rotate the tires. So, how often should you rotate your tires? Our service team recommends that the tires on your Honda be 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. Learn more about how often to rotate your tires in this guide from the experts at Apple Tree Honda.

Rotating Tires on FWD and RWD Vehicles

Most new Honda vehicles are either front-wheel drive or rear-wheel drive. What does that mean? It’s rather simple, actually. A front-wheel drive car receives engine power to the front tires, while in a rear-wheel drive car power is sent to the rear tires. The tires that receive direct power from the engine tend to wear faster than the others. By rotating the tires, Hendersonville drivers can ensure more even tread wear so that their tires will be safer and last longer. 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 recommendations.
  • When performing a FWD tire rotation yourself, you’ll need to flip sides when moving the rear tires. 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.
  • When rotating 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 and where you drive will affect how often you need to rotate your tires. The certified service technicians at Apple Tree Honda will be happy to help you determine a tire rotation and maintenance schedule that fits your driving habits.

AWD Tire Rotation Tips

How many miles before you’ll need to rotate tires on an AWD model? Each tire will wear differently, and at different speeds, since all can be engaged by the engine. It is recommended that you rotate the tires on your AWD vehicle every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. But, again, you should check your owner’s manual for exact numbers for your specific vehicle. Can’t remember the last time you performed a tire rotation? Schedule a service appointment at Apple Tree Honda, and our professional team will inspect your tires to see if you’re due for a rotation..

Why Rotate Tires?

Knowing when to rotate tires and how many miles you can drive before requiring a tire rotation can help improve your vehicle safety as well as extend the lifespan of your tires. Other benefits of routinely having your tires rotated include:

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

Tire rotations are an important part of your tire maintenance plan. With proper tire care, Johnson City drivers can enjoy a smooth and safe ride while getting the most out of their tires.
