Is it Time to Rotate Your Toyota's Tires?

When was the last time you had your tires rotated? No, not the last time you drove—we don't mean that kind of tire rotation. Tire rotation is when your wheels are taken off your vehicle and moved to a different wheel well.

While your tires all go to the same place, they don't all wear evenly. Your front tires handle steering, and they wear more on the outside. Your rear tires wear more evenly. The tires used for driving (whether your car has front-wheel, rear-wheel, or all-wheel drive) also wear faster. Tire rotation moves your tires around, and helps even out the wear and tear. If you didn't rotate your tires, some would wear down much faster than the others. This would lead to a poorer performance on the road, and can even be unsafe. Tire rotation leads to a smoother, safer drive, and extends your tires' lifespan.

It depends on how often you drive, but you generally want to rotate your tires twice a year, or ever 5,000 miles, whichever comes first. Just schedule an appointment at our service center, and we'll take care of the rest! At Toyota Martin, we're here to help.
