How Often Should You Rotate Your Tires?

Tire Row


Wondering when to rotate the tires on your Cadillac? Regular tire rotation will help to ensure that you enjoy smooth and safe driving on Santa Monica-area roads, while also helping extend the life of your tires. How often should you rotate your tires? It is recommended that you have your tires rotated every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. However, it’s always a good idea to check your owner’s manual to find the specific tire rotation schedule for your make and model. The expert’s service team at Cadillac of Beverly Hills is here to fill you in on how many miles to rotate tires and provide a few tire rotation tips to help make sure that you get the most out of your car’s tires. 

Rotating Tires on FWD and RWD Vehicles

Front-wheel drive (FWD) indicates that the engine power is delivered to the front tires, while rear-wheel drive (RWD) means that the power is sent to the rear tires. Since the tires that receive direct power from the engine tend to wear faster than the others, regularly rotating the tires ensures that they will wear evenly and last longer. With either an FWD or RWD vehicle, keep the following tire rotation tips in mind.

  • For FWD or RWD cars, tire rotation should be performed every 5,000 to 7,500 miles, but consult your owner’s manual to find the specific recommendation for your vehicle.
  • When performing an FWD tire rotation, the rear tires will need to flip sides when they are moved to the front. For example, the rear right tire will go on the front left and the rear left tire on the front right. When moving the front tires to the back, keep them on the same side.
  • To rotate tires on an RWD car, 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.
  • How often should you rotate your tires? It depends on how and where you drive. The certified service technicians at Cadillac of Beverly Hills can help you determine a tire rotation and maintenance schedule that fits your driving habits.

AWD Tire Rotation Tips

With an all-wheel-drive (AWD) vehicle, all four tires can be engaged by the engine at any given time. This causes each tire to wear differently and at different speeds. Generally, you should have your AWD tires rotated every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. Again, you should check your owner’s manual to find out what is recommended for your specific vehicle. If you are unsure whether or not to have your tires rotated you should schedule a service appointment at Cadillac of Beverly Hills. Our professional auto techs will inspect your tires to see if you’re due for a rotation.

Why Rotate Tires?

Along with regularly checking the tire tread depth and refilling your tires when the TPMS system alerts you, knowing when to rotate tires and how many miles you can drive before a tire rotation will help to maintain your safety on Sherman Oaks-area roads. Other benefits of routine tire rotations include:

  • Reduced stress on the drivetrain
  • Improved traction on slippery roads
  • Less noise from the wheels and tires when driving
  • Helps to extend the lifespan of your tires
