Why Rotate Your Tires?

Regular tire rotation extends the life of your tires, as well as the following additional benefits:

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

Keep tire rotations as part of your maintenance plan to stay safe on Staten Island roads. If you take your vehicle in for its recommended service intervals, the Jaguar-certified technicians will inspect the tires to see if rotation is needed–usually before tire tread depth is under 2/32 of an inch. If you’re in need of a full tire replacement Jaguar Freeport Certified Pre-Owned & Service can help.

Rotating Tires on FWD and RWD Vehicles

Why is tire rotation different for rear-wheel drive and front-wheel drive vehicles different?

  • On a front-wheel drive car, power is sent to the front wheels, which means the front tires are responsible for producing forward motion, enduring the most friction and wearing down faster.
  • Therefore on a rear-wheel drive car, the rear tires endure the most friction and will wear down faster.

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.

  • FWD Tire Rotation: Flip sides when moving the rear tires to the front. For example, the rear right tire will go on the front left side. However, when moving the front tires to the back, keep them on the same side.
  • RWD Tire Rotation: 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.

Rotating Tires on AWD Vehicles

How many miles to rotate tires on an AWD model, and what the tire rotation pattern should be, differs from FWD and RWD drivetrains, since each tire is responsible for forward motion at different times. Most experts set the standard timeline at 3,000 to 5,000 miles.
