When to rotate your tires

How often should you rotate your tires? Your owners manual should tell you when you should rotate your tires but if your manual is missing, remember you should rotate your tires every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. If you can't remember when to rotate your tires just do it with every oil change or every other oil change. Tire rotations help to keep your tires wearing evenly. Premature tire wear will cause you to replace your tires sooner then expected based on the quality of the tire. Also rotating the tires helps to keep the car handling as best as possible. For example, if your tires are worn unevenly, on the front then in the rear, this can affect your braking and also the way the car rides.
