Experts recommend rotating your tires every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. However, not every car is the same. So when is the right time for your car? For starters, check your vehicle’s owner’s manual to find more exact figures for your make and model’s suggested rotation frequency. Additionally, keep in mind your driving habits and Jacksonville weather conditions and how they can impact the rate of tire wear. If you’re looking to learn how to estimate tire rotation frequency for your car, and how to read the warning signs that it’s time to schedule this routine service, make your way to the Hodges Mazda service center.
Even drivers that stay on the flattest of Orange Park roads can’t avoid uneven tire wear. Simply turning the corner will cause more wear to a tire’s outer edges than the inside. Tire rotations are important, as they move each tire to the opposite edge for even tread wear across the tire and longer tire life. Waiting too long between tire rotations can result in unevenly worn tires, with possible consequences, including:
If your Mazda SUV or sedan has AWD, all four tires are actively engaged, so they will wear differently than the tires on a FWD or RWD vehicle. As a result, the answer to when to rotate tires will vary between drivetrains:
Making sure you’re keeping tabs on tire wear yourself is the best way to ensure you don’t miss a tire rotation service. Check for the following signs of tread wear:
Remember, wear that has spread throughout the tread pattern isn’t a sign you need a rotation.
If you notice an irregular wear pattern where one side has less tread than another, it’s likely time to replace the tire. You can still rotate such a tire if the wear is mild, but a severely worn tire is a safety hazard and should be changed out for a new one.
