Tires



Need to knew when to rotate tires on your vehicle? It’s recommended you have the tires rotated between 5,000 and 7,500 intervals. Though this is a good ground rule, you’ll want to check your owner’s manual for more exact numbers. Still curious when to rotate tires? Check out our guide at Victory Mitsubishi today and make the trip to our tire center for some assistance in having your tires rotated!

Rotating Tires on FWD and RWD Vehicles

What’s the difference between front-wheel and rear-wheel drive? This simply tells you where the power from the engine is being sent. For a front-wheel drive car, it is sent to the front tires, while in a rear-wheel drive car it is sent to the rear tires. This also tells you which tires will wear faster. Should you drive a FWD or RWD vehicle, keep these tire rotation tips in mind:

  • For FWD or RWD cars, tire rotation needs to be performed every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. Be sure to consult your owner’s manual for exact figures.
  • If you’re performing a FWD tire rotation yourself, keep in mind to flip sides when moving the rear tires. For example, 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 an 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.
  • Keep in mind how you drive, like off-roading, will affect how often you need to rotate your tires. Talk with the service experts at Victory Mitsubishi to get a better idea of a maintenance schedule that fits your driving habits.

AWD Tire Rotation Tips

Curious how many miles to rotate tires on an AWD model? These vehicles work slightly differently since each tire wears differently, and at different speeds. The interval to change tires on these models range from 3,000 to 5,000 miles, but make sure you get the exact numbers from the owner’s manual. If you can’t remember the last time you performed a tire rotation, don’t hesitate to schedule service at Victory Mitsubishi. We’ll perform an inspection to see if you’re due for a rotation.

Why Rotate Tires?

Rotating your tires regularly will help extend the life of your tires. In addition to this, regular tire rotation can give your vehicle other benefits including:

  • Improved traction on slippery roads
  • Less noise on the road
  • Relieves unnecessary stress on the drivetrain

This will help you be better prepared for the winter months as well as other hazardous driving conditions. Make sure you remember to keep tire rotations a part of your maintenance plan. And it’s important to remember that properly caring for your tires will help them last longer, but won’t make them last forever.
