How Often Should You Rotate Your Tires?

As the single point of contact with the road ahead, the tires are arguably one of the most important parts on your vehicle. The amount of traction, your ability to stop as quickly as you need to, and your ability to maneuver quickly out of potentially dangerous situations are all determined by the overall health of your tires.

The tire rotation service is a preventative maintenance care service that helps to ensure that your vehicles stay healthy for as long as possible. To help you get to know this service and learn about its benefits, we’ve answered the most common question we get about tires: How often should I rotate my tires?

Keep reading to learn the answer and more from the service team at BMW of Manhattan.

What’s a Tire Rotation?

A tire rotation is usually offered during your oil change service. Our service professionals inspect all four tires and check for wear and tear. Then the two front tires are switched with the two rear tires.

The change in position from one side of the vehicle to the other ensures that the tires get even wear on the inside and outside. It also gives the service team a chance to check for abrasions, lesions, cracks, and low tread level-all of which indicate a necessary tire replacement.

How Often Should I Rotate My Tires?

Tires should generally be rotated about every 5,000 to 6,000 miles or when you get your vehicle’s oil changed. This is a preventative maintenance service and is necessary for ensuring that your tires wear evenly.

If you’re not sure what the exact service interval is for your vehicle, you can find information from the manufacturer in your owner’s manual.
