Tire Rotation Schedule
You should schedule a professional tire rotation every six months or 6,000 to 8,000 miles.
Below is a suggested tire rotation schedule depending on your vehicle make and model and the type of tires you have. It would help if you scheduled a tire rotation with AA Auto Tech every 5,000-8,000 miles. Check your owner’s manual or ask a technician how often we should rotate tires on your particular car.
We rotate the tires on the following types of vehicles:
Four-Wheel Standard Vehicle
● Front Wheel Drive
● Rear Wheel Drive
● 4-Wheel Drive
● Unidirectional (Tread Faces One Way)
Six-Wheel Personal or Commercial Vehicles
● Standard Dually Rotation
● Alternate Dually Rotation
An AA Auto Tech mechanic removes each tire and places it on a different axel. Rotation generally involves moving the front tires to the back and the back tires to the front. We may also rotate tires from one side to the other.
Signs That Your Tires Need to be Rotated
Even if you are not a mechanic, you can generally tell when your tires need to be rotated. Some indicators include:
Uneven Wear Between the Tires
Uneven wear indicates that the front tires are wearing faster than the rear tires. If you notice this happening with your tires, they need to be rotated as soon as possible. The wear difference will soon become insignificant if the tires aren’t worn out completely.
Eventually, the tires will wear out prematurely, and you will spend more money than you have to on new tires.
At speeds of 45 mph and higher, you may feel a vibration caused by uneven wear. When you notice unusual vibration, your tires need to be rotated, balanced, or the wheels aligned. If you fail to rotate the tires, you are creating a road hazard.
If one tire loses air slowly or faster than the other tires, there may be too much pressure on the tire. You may need to visit an AA Auto Tech technician for a tire inspection. The tires may need rotation, or repair from a puncture. There may be other issues as well, such a nail in the tread, which we can quickly fix.
