How often should you rotate your tires? For many cars, this would be every 5,000 to 7,000 miles. But this is not always the case. Let’s take a closer look with the guide below on how many miles to go before you rotate tires.

Why Should You Rotate Your Tires?

You know how often to rotate your tires, but why should you do so in the first place? During normal driving conditions, your tires will tend to wear down at different rates. The tires that receive power from the drivetrain and steer the vehicle are especially prone to rapid wear.

By rotating your tires, you ensure that they all wear down at the same time, and you’ll also enjoy the following benefits:

  • Improved traction
  • Less vehicle shake and road noise
  • Less stress on the drivetrain
