What Is Tire Rotation?

A tire rotation is a preventive maintenance procedure recommended for all tires, regardless of their brand or type. It's also essential to perform a tire rotation every six months on new vehicles and every three months on used cars.

When Should I Rotate My Tires?

It's generally recommended to rotate tires every 8,000 kilometres or so. This can vary depending on your vehicle type and tires, so it's best to consult your owner's manual for exact specifications for your make and model. If your tires are worn and need replacement, visit our online Parts Centre to purchase quality new tires.

Why Should I Rotate My Tires?

Rotating your tires can help to improve your car's handling and performance. When your tires are properly rotated, they're put in the correct position on the wheel hub (the part of the wheel that contacts the road). This means they're balanced and ready to handle the forces exerted on them by the road. Additionally, rotating your tires can improve their lifespan. This will reduce the chances of them wearing out or being damaged, leading to decreased performance and increased susceptibility to punctures.

How Should I Rotate My Tires?

There are three primary types of tire rotation: rearward cross, x-pattern, and forward cross. Rearward cross tire rotation is the most common type of rotation and involves crisscrossing the tires from the rear of the vehicle to the front. An x-pattern tire rotation is similar to a rearward cross rotation, but the tires are crossed in an X pattern (front left to rear right, front right to rear left). A forward cross rotation is less common but involves crossing the tires from the front of the vehicle to the rear.
