Tires don’t last forever. If you don’t rotate them, they wear down unevenly and therefore become hazardous sooner. Rotating tires at the right time and doing so the right way extends the life of your tires so they can take you their full distance before finally being safely retired in favor of a new set. If scheduling a few extra maintenance appointments for your car feels unnecessary, it’s better than having to buy a new set of tires after one bursts mid-drive.
Chances are, your Toyota Vehicle is either a front-wheel, rear-wheel, or an all-wheel drive. Each of these drive types requires different tire rotation patterns but don’t worry too much about that. Your service technician knows how to rotate your tires the correct way to get the best possible life out of your tires. Professional technicians can make sure your tires are properly aligned and can let you know about how many miles you can get out of your current set.
If you have a brand-new car, you should bring your car in to have the tires rotated earlier than usual. Since a new car is still settling into its role in its first three months, you should bring it in around the end of its first three months, or 3,000 miles. After that, you should rotate your tires every six months, or 6-8,000 miles. It might be convenient to get an oil change at the same time.
