How Often Should You Rotate Your Tires at Ken Ganley Honda?

Rotating tires

Not sure when to rotate tires on your Honda car, truck, or SUV? Typically, you should rotate your tires every 5,000 to 8,000 miles. However, for exact figures you’ll want to consult your vehicle’s owner’s manual. Still unsure about how often you should rotate your tires on a front and rear-wheel drive vehicle? Find out with these tire rotation tips from the experts at Ken Ganley Honda, your trusted North Olmsted-area Service Center.

When to Rotate Tires on an RWD or FWD Honda

So, what exactly does FWD and RWD stand for? Front-wheel and rear-wheel drive simply refers to where the engine power is distributed. Front-wheel drive models direct power to the front tires, whereas rear-wheel drive models direct power to the rear tires.

Depending on your configuration, one set of tires will get more engine power and wear down faster than the other set. Not sure how many miles to rotate tires on these types of powertrains? Just follow the instructions and tips below:

  • For FWD or RWD cars, tire rotation needs to be performed every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. Be sure to consult your owner’s manual for exact figures.
  • If you’re performing a FWD tire rotation yourself, keep in mind to flip sides when moving the rear tires. For example, the rear right tire will go on the front left. However, when moving the front tires to the back, keep them on the same side.
  • When rotating 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.
  • Note that certain driving conditions, like off-roading, will affect how often you need to rotate your tires. If you ever need to consult with experts about what type of tires best match your driving habits, you can always contact Ken Ganley Honda for more information.
