What Are the Benefits of Tire Rotations?

The primary benefit of tire rotations is safety, but the ride comfort that you receive from regularly moving the tires from one axle to another is another benefit. And it's one that drivers usually appreciate the most. Tires do not wear evenly, which can affect handling capability or cause your vehicle to pull from one side. The only solution is to ensure the tires are rotated before they wear down too low. When tires reach 2/32 inches of tread, they are considered unsafe and must be replaced. Another benefit is longevity. Whether you purchased the tires currently on your vehicle or they are the original tires, rotating them is a very effective way of delaying the out-of-pocket expense of purchasing new ones.

Are There Different Types of Tire Rotations?

For front-wheel drive vehicles, tires are rotated from the front axle to the rear axle and vice-versa, otherwise known as front-to-back. These tires have a directional pattern and need to rotate in the same direction. However, that is not the only rotation that could be used for your vehicle. For example, non-directional tires are typically rotated using an "X-pattern" rotation. This pattern moves the front tires to the opposite rear and the opposite front axle. Other rotation patterns include rearward cross, forward cross, and side-to-side. Additionally, if your vehicle is equipped with a full-size spare, it is to your advantage to include the spare in the rotation process.
