When Should I Rotate My Tires?

Refer to your owner's manual for the exact tire rotation schedule for your car. The general recommendation is that tires be rotated every 5,000 to 8,000 miles, and this often coincides with oil changes. Consider exploring an in depth article about how often you should rotate your tires for more information.

Regular tire rotation is important because it can preserve balance and traction, and even out tire wear from front-to-rear and side-to-side. If it's time to rotate your vehicle's tires, our mobile mechanics can come to your location to service your car.
