Tire Rotation When? Why?

Tire rotation refers to the regular practice of switching the position of each tire on the car. 
Purpose: Tire rotation helps to equalize tread wear and is critical to gain the maximum life from your tire investment.

The rotation pattern varies with different makes and models, which shows the tire locations during rotation. Some vehicles have different size tires on the front and back or directional tires. This limits the locations that a tire may take on the vehicle. When in doubt, check the owner's manual or consult a professional technician for guidance. Tire rotation time also offers a good opportunity to have the tires and wheels balanced. It's another step you can take to maximize your tire investment.
