How Often Should You Rotate Your Tires?

Mechanic with Tires

 

How often should you rotate your tires? Generally, tire rotation should be performed roughly every 5,000 to 8,000 miles. Though this is a good ground rule, for exact figures for your particular vehicle, you should always check your Hyundai owner’s manual. Still curious about when to rotate tires, or if it’s time to do so right now? Check out the Hyundai of Las Vegas service guide to rotating tires or call 725-236-4400.

 

How Many Miles to Rotate Tires: FWD vs. RWD Vehicles

How often should you rotate your tires routinely? The answer to this pivotal automotive maintenance question is heavily dependent upon what kind of vehicle you drive. No, we’re not talking about whether you drive a Hyundai, a Kia, or Nissan. We’re talking about what kind of drivetrain your vehicle has: namely, AWD, FWD, or RWD. For the latter two options, here’s how often to rotate your tires:

  • For FWD or RWD cars, tire rotation should be completed roughly every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. Check your owner’s manual for more finely-tuned service interval recommendations.
  • If you’re performing a FWD tire rotation at home in Henderson, keep in mind to flip sides when moving the rear tires. For instance, the rear right tire will go on the front left. However, when moving the front tires to the back, keep them on the same side.
  • When rotating tires on a RWD car, invert the process above. Flip sides when moving the front tires to the back, but keep the rear tires on the same side when moving them forward.
  • The type of driving you do (i.e. off-roading vs. smooth highway cruising) will affect how often you need to rotate your tires. A Hyundai of Las Vegas service expert can provide more tailored maintenance suggestions for your unique needs.

AWD Tire Rotation Tips

If you have an all-wheel drive (AWD) Hyundai vehicle, then your vehicle will have vastly different tire rotation needs than FWD or RWD vehicles. 

In AWD vehicles, power is sent to all wheels at the same time, so tire rotation will need to be done in a specific way and in intervals much sooner than other types of vehicles. Namely, AWD tires need to be rotated every 3,000 – 5,000 milesif you use AWD regularly in North Las Vegas. Does your vehicle have intelligent AWD that defaults to FWD or RWD? Check in with a service advisor at Hyundai of Las Vegas to see if you can wait longer in-between tire rotations or simply schedule service now.

Performing a DIY tire rotation in North Las Vegas or Paradise? Here’s what you should know:

  1. The left rear goes to the right front spot.
  2. The right rear goes to the left front spot.
  3. The right front goes to the left rear spot.
  4. The left front goes to the right rear spot.
