How can you tell if my tires need to be rotated?

My car has 45000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi, thanks for writing in. If it has been more than 5000 miles, then it is time. Also, you can take a look at the front and rear tires and move your hand over top of the tires in one direction, and then in the other direction. If you fell smooth in one direction and rough in the other direction, then it would be a good time to rotate the tires. If it’s time to rotate your tires, consider having an expert automotive technician from YourMechanic come to your home or office to perform the rotation for you.
