When to Rotate Tires

After how many miles should you get a tire rotation? As a general rule of thumb, between 5,000 and 7,000 miles is the recommended range to rotate your tires. It is also important to reference your vehicle's owner's manual to be sure what your model specifically recommends to promote its best performance. For an all-wheel drive model, more frequent rotations at about every 3,000 to 5,000 miles is encouraged. Check our service department's Kia service hours and stop in if your due for a rotation. 

Why Rotate Your Tires

Your tires are hardworking components of your vehicle, contributing to your safety and control on Schaumburg roads and beyond. It is important to rotate your tires to keep your Kia running optimally and to keep you and other drivers safe. Rotating your tires: 

  • Promotes Even Wear: Depending on your drivetrain, your tires may wear unevenly because the front or back tires may work harder than the others. Uneven wear could lead to misalignment or blow-outs, both of which are avoidable dangers. 
  • Preserves Balanced Handling:Balanced handling is a benefit of routinely rotated tires. This is important for inclement weather conditions or alternate terrain you may experience throughout the greater Hoffman Estates area. 
  • Maintains Traction:Over time, tires lose their original tread depth. Healthy tread depth is vital to your tire's ability to grip. Similar to the benefit of better handling, good traction will also keep you and other drivers safer in slick, wet, or icy conditions. 
  • Prolongs Tire Lifespan:Since tire rotations promote even wear, this will allow you to get as much life from your tires as safely possible.
