How Often Should Tires be Rotated?


While tire rotations might feel like a way for mechanics to upcharge you during your routine maintenance appointments -they're actually crucial to the safety and long-term viability of your tires. What are some signs your tires need to be rotated?

From a lack of response while braking, a drop in normal fuel efficiency, to squeezing or whistling sounds when you take corners, there are a variety of things you can recognize that will tell you it's time to have your tires rotated.

Frequent rotation of tires (every six months, or about every 6,000 to 8,000 miles depending on your vehicle) helps each tire tread wear evenly across as the tire ages. It's particularly important to rotate tires frequently on all-wheel-drive vehicles, since even minor variations in tread depth can stress your vehicle's drivetrain. An even tread doesn't just mean better traction, but also more responsive braking and more efficient gas mileage. Best of all, evenly worn tires last longer - meaning you get the most out of every pair of tires you purchase for your Honda.
