How Many Miles to Rotate Tires: FWD and RWD Vehicles

The designations of front-wheel and rear-wheel drive simply refer to where power from the engine is 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 means the set of tires getting the bulk of the engine power wear faster than the others. If 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 check your owner’s manual to be exact.
  • If you’re performing a FWD tire rotation yourself, keep in mind to flip sides when moving the rear tires. The rear right tire will go on the front left. When moving the front tires to the back, keep them on the same side.
  • When rotating tires on a RWD car, invert the process. Flip sides when moving the front tires to the back, but keep the rear tires on the same side when moving them forward.
  • Driving habits will affect how often you need to rotate your tires. Talk with the service experts at Allen Samuels CDJR Aransas Pass to get a better idea of a maintenance schedule that fits your personal driving habits.
