Do you know how to maximize the life of your tires? After maintaining proper tire inflation, the most effective thing you can do is rotating your vehicle’s tires regularly. This goes for 2WD, 4WD, and AWD drive vehicles alike.
While many people assume that the tires don’t need to be rotated in an AWD vehicle because all four wheels receive power, tire wear is always uneven, no matter the vehicle’s drivetrain. Acceleration, braking, inflation, and tire slip can all cause tires to wear out. And because AWD vehicles do not distribute engine torque and braking power to each wheel evenly, they require tire rotation services every 5,000 to 7,500 miles just like 2WD cars.
