What is Tire Rotation?

Tire rotation is an essential part of your vehicle’s maintenance. It involves moving from one position to another to ensure even wear and extend the lifespan. This helps you save money by avoiding premature replacements.

 

Regularly rotating your tires not only ensures even wear but also allows our auto technicians and machinists to inspect them thoroughly. During the rotation process, we will check for signs of wear, damage, or potential issues. This will help us identify and address these problems early to prevent costly tire replacement or repairs.

Our Expertise in Tire Rotation Pattern

To achieve the best results from tire rotation, it’s essential to follow the proper tire rotation pattern. The most common rotation pattern involves moving the rear tires to the front and switching the front tires to the rear, ensuring even wear on all four tires.
However, various rotation patterns depend on your vehicle’s configuration. Directional tires, in particular, require special attention during rotation, as they are designed to rotate in a specific direction for optimal performance.

 

Some vehicles may also require different rotation patterns, such as four wheel drive, six tire rotation, or rear wheel drive. For vehicles equipped with dual rear wheels, such as some trucks and trailers, tire rotation becomes even more critical. Uneven tread wear on these vehicles can lead to costly repairs and reduced stability.

 

At Jensen Auto Service, our team of skilled auto technicians and machinists are knowledgeable in the appropriate tire rotation patterns for various vehicle types. We will provide you with a recommendation for the most suitable pattern for your specific vehicle.

 

To rotate tires, we move each tire to a different position on your vehicle, distributing the wear evenly across all four tires. Following your manufacturer’s recommendations and industry best practices, we ensure your tires receive the best care possible, enhancing their longevity and your driving experience.

Special Considerations for Rear Tires

For rear wheel drive vehicles, the rear tires may wear out quicker than the front. This is because the rear axle will endure the weight of your vehicle’s engine. That’s why our expert auto technicians and machinists suggest rotating the tires more often if you own a rear wheel drive car to ensure even tire wear and extend the lifespan of your tires.


At Jensen Auto Service, our skilled technicians and machinists will perform different tire rotation patterns for vehicles with front wheel drive, rear wheel drive, all wheel drive, or dual rear wheels. Different wheel positions can cause uneven wear patterns on tires. At Jensen Auto Service, our specialized tire rotation addresses these issues, ensuring your tires wear evenly and last longer.

Spare Tire Maintenance

While the spare tire is often forgotten, it is equally essential to include it when rotating tires. At Jensen Auto Service, we will inspect your spare tire’s condition, ensure it’s properly inflated, and incorporate it into the rotation pattern. During tire rotation, we also inspect and rotate your spare tire into the mix. By doing so, we ensure that all five tires wear evenly, extending their overall lifespan and keeping you prepared for any unforeseen emergencies.

Addressing Front and Rear Axles 

Tire rotation involves moving tires between the front axle tires and rear axle tires, ensuring even wear on all positions, including the rear position. At Jensen Auto Service, we will pay attention to the unique wear patterns that may occur on the front and rear axles. This attention to detail guarantees that your tires maintain optimal performance, enhancing your vehicle’s overall driving experience.

Timing and Frequency of Tire Rotation

The timing and frequency of rotating your tires may depend on several factors. At Jensen Auto Service, we recommend getting your tires rotated every 5,000 to 8,000 miles or whenever you schedule an oil change. For more precise intervals, our expert technicians and machinists will consult your vehicle’s owner’s manual or your tire manufacturer’s recommendations. We offer customized tire rotation schedules based on your unique driving habits, the type of tires you have, and your vehicle’s specifications.
