Tire Rotation on FWD and RWD Vehicles

Front-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive vehicle designations mean that depending on your vehicle, this is where the power is sent from the engine. So, for a front-wheel-drive car, the power is sent to the front wheels, and for a rear-wheel-drive car, power is sent to the rear. In this case, the set of tires receiving the engine power would wear quicker. So, let’s check out a few tips to keep in mind when rotating your tires below:

  • For FWD or RWD cars, you should rotate your tires every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. However, it’s important to consult your owner’s manual to be sure.
  • If you’re performing a FWD tire rotation, you should flip sides when moving the rear tires to the front, and keep the front tires on the same side.
  • If you have a RWD car, you should reverse the process. Move the front tires to the back and flip them, however, keep the rear tires on the same side when moving them to the front. 
  • Driving habits also have an impact on when to rotate tires, Keep in mind how you drive, like off-roading, will affect how often you need to rotate your tires. Talk with the service experts at Bayer Motor Company to get a better idea of a maintenance schedule that fits your driving habits.

Tire Rotation on AWD Vehicles

If you drive an all-wheel-drive (AWD) vehicle around Comanche, you’ll likely need to rotate your tires more often. Because the power from the engine is sent to all four wheels, it’s recommended to rotate your tires every 3,000-5,000 miles if you use AWD often around Brownwood. Let’s check out some tips on how to rotate your if you drive an AWD vehicle:

  1. The left rear goes to the right front spot.
  2. The right rear goes to the left front spot.
  3. The right front goes to the left rear spot.
  4. The left front goes to the right rear spot.

We recommend drawing a diagram of your vehicle’s drivetrain, using color-coded arrows to help make the entire process easier. However, if you would like to have this done by the professionals, be sure to schedule service with the Bayer Motor Company service team today!
