How to Rotate Tires

Changing Tires

There’s no reason to not rotate your tires every 5,000-7,000 miles. Whether you bring them to Acura of Escondido’s service department, or rotate them yourself at home in San Diego, rotating your tires will help your tires wear more evenly, ensuring longer life and a safer ride.

Why Should You Rotate Your Tires?

Rotating can help you net better fuel economy, enjoy better traction on slippery roads, and ride with less noise and vibration. Your car will handle better, because the practice will even out the tread depth on each of your tires. Tire rotation will increase the life of your tires, but you’ll still need to replace your tires eventually.

Tire Position

  • For FWD, move the rear tires to the front and flip them. The left rear tire should go on the right front wheel. When you move the front tires to the back, keep them on the same side.
  • For RWD, move the front tires to the back and flip them. The left front should go on the right rear wheel. When you move the back tires to the front, keep them on the same side.
  • If you use your vehicle on rough roads near Carlsbad, you should consider rotating your tires more often.

How to Rotate Tires at Home

Rotating tires at home in Temecula is relatively easy. You’ll need a car jack, lug nut wrench, and a set of car jacks before starting:

  1. Engage the parking brake.
  2. Loosen the lug nuts on all four wheels, but don’t take them all the way off. This step makes unscrewing them when the tire is elevated much easier
  3. Lift up one wheel with a car jack and place the jack stand underneath it.
  4. Remove the tires and check tire pressure. Add air if necessary before rotating according to the appropriate pattern for your drivetrain. Place the tire onto the wheel mount and screw the lug nuts on by hand as far as you can.
  5. Lower the car from the jack stands and use the lug wrench to finish tightening the nuts. It’s best to work the lug nuts diagonally from one to another in a star pattern to ensure even tightening. If the lug nuts aren’t tightened evenly it can cause the brake rotor to warp.
