How often should you rotate your tires? The question of when to rotate tires has usually been answered with every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. For exact figures on your new Hyundai or used model though, you should always consult your owner’s manual. Need more information on the reasoning behind those numbers? Learn more with this simple guide from Suntrup Hyundai South, your trusted St. Louis service center.

Rotating Tires on FWD and RWD Vehicles

Front-wheel drive, or FWD, refers to a drivetrain that sends power from the engine to the front wheels. Rear-wheel drive, or RWD, refers to a drivetrain that sends power from the engine to the rear wheels. Whichever tires get power from the engine will wear faster than the others. So keep these tire rotation tips in mind, depending on the kind of vehicle you drive:

  • For FWD or RWD cars, tire rotation should be performed every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. 
  • Flip sides when moving the rear tires for a FWD car, bringing the rear right tire to the front left. When moving the front tires to the back, keep them on the same side.
  • Invert the process above if you have a RWD vehicle. Flip sides when moving the front tires to the back, but keep the rear tires on the same side when moving them forward.
  • Off-roading or heavy towing will affect how often you need to rotate your tires. Schedule service with Suntrup Hyundai South to get a better idea of a maintenance schedule that fits your driving habits.

AWD Tire Rotation Tips

Curious how many miles to rotate tires on an AWD model? The numbers work differently in this situation, since each tire wears differently, and at different speeds. Most experts say to set the tire rotation interval at 3,000 to 5,000 miles in these cases. Can’t remember the last time you got your tires rotated? Again, consult your owners manual and contact us at Suntrup Hyundai South. We’ll perform an inspection and see if you’re due. Tires usually require a rotation once the tread variance exceeds 2/32 of an inch.

Why Rotate Tires?

Tire rotation certainly lengthens the life of your tires, along with these additional benefits:

  • Improved traction on slippery roads
  • Less noise on the road
  • Relieves unnecessary stress on the drivetrain

Need to be better prepared for hazardous weather around St. Louis? Tire rotations are an important part of your maintenance plan. Just remember that proper tire care doesn’t mean they’ll last forever. So be sure to get in touch when they need to be replaced.
