How often should my tires be rotated?

Tire rotation is an important part of keeping your vehicle running well. Rotating the tires prolongs the lifespan of the tires, and also gives your vehicle a smoother, more consistent ride. The tires should be rotated by a professional roughly once every 7,500 miles.
