When Should You Get Your Tires Rotated?

While there is a general set timeframe recommendation for when to get your tires rotated, it can be a bit more complicated than that. A good rule to live by is getting them rotated every 10,000 km, and at the very least, checking them to ensure if such a swap is needed due to any abnormalities. Of course, this is just a recommended number, as a number of different factors may suggest a shorter or longer timeframe. Everybody drives; differently, each vehicle drives differently, and you may be driving it in a completely different environment than somebody else with the same vehicle, necessitating a different time. Stick with the 10K number, but keep an eye on your vehicle’s tires throughout.

The Importance of a Tire Rotation

Tires go through a lot of wear over their life. It makes sense, as they are the one contact with the road and thus feel the brunt of any road damage and bumps and bruises. Even though they all touch the road, some might be more susceptible to wear than others due to a vehicle’s alignment, inflation and more. We want to make sure your tires wear as evenly as possible and that there isn’t one tire that is completely different from the others. This is where tire rotation comes in, helping you even out this wear, and thus extend that vital lifespan of your tires. Doing so can help you save in the future by making you not have to spend on needed tires.
