When should I get my tires rotated?

Just like oil changes, your tires need to be rotated at recommended mile marks. Mechanics recommend that you get your tires rotated every 6,000 to 8,000 miles or every six months. You can also get your tires rotated at every other oil change appointment. Although this recommendation works for most vehicles, it is encouraged that you check your vehicle’s owner’s manual.

Three signs your tires need to be rotated

Although most tires last the entire 6,000 to 8,000 miles before needing to be rotated, several factors may lead to needing to do it sooner. Driving habits and road conditions can affect your tires. There are three signs you can look out for to determine if your tires need to be rotated. The first sign is uneven tire wear. You’ll notice that one side of a tire is more worn down than the other. The second sign is vehicle vibration. If you feel your vehicle vibrating when driving 45 mpg or faster, this is a sign that your tires have uneven wear and need to be balanced. The third sign is pressure loss. If notice that one tire is losing air pressure faster than the others, it may be a sign that the tire has too much weight on it. However, be sure to check for any punctures as well.
