The tyres on the front and rear of your car do different jobs, so the tread on the tyres typically wears at different rates. The tread is what allows your wheels to grip the road and maintain traction in slippery conditions. Regularly rotating your tyres helps the tread to wear more evenly, extending the life of your tyres and keeping your car safer. A wheel balance is also recommended when conducting a tyre rotation.
We recommend rotating your tyres approximately every 10,000 km. However, additional factors may require more frequent tyre rotations. For example: if you’re noticing uneven wear patterns, if you regularly drive at high speed and for long distances, or if your vehicle carries heavy loads. If your steering wheel vibrates or your tyres are noisy when driving along smooth roads, it might be time to have them rotated.
