Understanding Tyre Rotations

Tyre rotation is where we change the position of the vehicle’s tyres to ensure even wear.

Usually, that means swapping the front and rear tyre pairs. These two sets of tyres undergo unequal wear due to varying loads and steering patterns.

By changing them, you can equalise these natural wear patterns by rotating them, normally front to back and side to side.

Doing so improves the lifespan, maintains balanced handling, and improves traction on the road.

Regular tyre rotation is recommended every 5,000 to 8,000 miles or as specified by the vehicle’s manufacturer.

Wheel balancing and disposal are included in the price of all tyre fittings.

Why Tyre Rotation is Important

Maximising the wear on your tyres isn’t just economically sensible, reducing the cost of constant tyre replacements; it also improves driving safety. But the advantages don’t stop there.

Here are some of the benefits:

  • Promotes even tyre wear, preventing premature wear on specific tyres
  • Extends tyre lifespan by distributing wear across all tires
  • Enhances vehicle handling and stability for a smoother drive
  • Improves safety and traction, reducing the risk of accidents
  • Ensures consistent tyre performance for balanced braking and cornering
  • Helps identify and rectify other tyre issues during rotation checks
  • Maintains optimal air pressure balance across all tyres for fuel efficiency

Frequently asked questions.

Our most frequently asked questions.

When should tyres be rotated?2023-12-20T15:19:25+00:00

The ideal timing for tyre rotation is a topic discussed extensively online, but as a general guideline, we recommend scheduling a tyre rotation every 5,000 to 7,000 miles or approximately every six months, whichever comes first.

Is rotating tyres a good idea?2023-12-20T15:19:04+00:00

Rotating your tyres is generally a good idea as it helps ensure even wear across all four tyres. Uneven tyre wear can lead to reduced traction, handling issues, and the need for premature tyre replacement.

Tyre Rotations – Best Practices

Tyre rotation is a debated topic in the automotive industry.

Some argue that swapping the position of the tyres can reduce your driving safety. However, that depends on why and how the tyres are swapped.  If you follow the best guidance, you can reduce the risks and maximise your tyre efficiency.

We advise:

  • Following the manufacturer’s recommended rotation pattern
  • Rotate tyres every 5,000 to 8,000 miles.
  • Use specific rotation patterns for directional, non-directional, asymmetrical, or symmetrical tyres.
  • Check tyre pressure and tread depth during rotation.
  • Use a trusted qualified technician.
