Tires Check & Rotation
There are two approaches for determining when to rotate your tires:
1. Consult your owner’s manual and find the manufacturer’s recommended tire rotation interval. Most manufacturers recommend that drivers rotate their tires after 5,000 miles, or drivers can adhere to a regular maintenance schedule and have their tires rotated during every oil change.
2. Visually inspect your tires on a regular basis and rotate them yourself, or schedule a rotation whenever the front or rear tires whenever begin to show uneven wear.
Following the recommendations that your manufacturer suggested in the owner’s manual is your best bet, but visually inspecting tires every few weeks is a quick way to document the current tread wear while noting if any of them are wearing quicker than others. Your Pep Boys service associate can also help you determine if your tires have any signs of uneven wear.
- Rotation of tires on your vehicle to optimize tread life in accordance with the vehicle manufacturer’s recommendation
- o Note: If the difference between the front tire tread depth and the rear tire tread depth is less than or equal to 2/32", a standard tire rotation may be performed. If the tread depth differential is greater than 2/32”, the two tires with the greatest amount of remaining tread must be placed on the rear axle.
