Regularly rotating your tires can give you better traction on San Jose roads and help keep you and your passengers safe.
Tires don’t wear evenly. Because of the impact they experience when turning, the outside edges of your front tires usually show greater wear while the rear wheels typically wear more evenly. This means that if you don’t regularly rotate your tires, they will wear at different rates and you’ll have no choice but to replace them sooner. Understanding the importance of tire rotation can help you remember when to schedule appointments. Just make sure you know how to check your tire tread depth at home.
Front and rear-wheel drive vehicles usually need their tires rotated every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. All-wheel drive vehicles require tire rotation more frequently, every 3,000-5,000 miles. The reason is that all tires are actively engaged and that causes faster wear. Check out our guide on how often to rotate tires, but note that all Santa Clara drivers should check their owner’s manual for vehicle-specific recommendations.
If you want to know how to rotate your tires at home, you’ll need a car jack, lug nut wrench, and a set of car jacks. Then, when you’re ready, follow these five steps:
