How Often Should You Rotate Your Tires?

Removing a wheel

Everyone knows that proper Honda maintenance, like wheel alignment and balancing, is important for the best possible performance. But, how often should you rotate your tires — and why does it matter? At Valley Honda, we highly recommend scheduling a tire rotation around every six months. Exactly how many miles to rotate tires varies depending on your driving habits and road conditions, but generally speaking, twice a year is a good guideline for most people in the Chicago and Naperville area.


What Does a Tire Rotation Do?

Each tire in your set faces different stresses depending on its placement on the car. For example, the front tires in a front-wheel-drive vehicle are under considerable strain compared to those in the back of the vehicle. If you keep your tires in the same place forever, you’ll suffer from poor handling and early tire failure. Repositioning the tires helps to extend the life of the entire set by redistributing the wear evenly. Tire rotations occur in a specific pattern:

  • Front-Wheel Drive Vehicle: Move the front tires to the back; move the rear tires to the front and swap sides.
  • Rear-Wheel Drive Vehicle: Move the rear tires to the front: move the front tires to the back and swap sides.
  • Four-Wheel Drive Vehicle: Move the rear tires to the front: move the front tires to the back and swap sides.

Do I Need a Tire Replacement?

So, you might be wondering when to rotate tires. Most manufacturers recommend changing your set every 25,000 to 50,000 miles. You might need to change your tires more frequently if you take part in a lot of off-roading or towing, while you might get more life out of your tires if you don’t drive as much. But if you notice any of these signs, get to the service department immediately!

  • Bald tread or uneven wear
  • Damaged sidewalls
  • Car vibrations and shaking on smooth roads
  • Driving on spare tire
  • Tire warranty expired
