Tire Rotation Patterns
Before rotating your tires, consult your vehicle
owner's manual for rotation recommendations for
your particular vehicle.
If no rotation period
is specified, we recommend rotating your tires
every 6,000 to 8,000 miles (9,600 to 12,800 km)
or at any sign of uneven wear. The first
rotation is most important.
If the tires show
uneven wear, ask your tire specialist to check
for and correct any misalignment, imbalance, or
other mechanical problem before rotation.
IMPORTANT: Do not include a "temporary use only" spare tire in any of these rotation patterns. If you have a regular tire as a spare and wish to include it in
the rotation process, follow this procedure:
Use one of the standard tire rotation patterns below but insert the spare in the right rear position.
Place the tire, which would have gone to the right rear position
as your new spare. When the tires are rotated, be sure inflation pressures
are adjusted in accordance with the vehicle manufacturer's recommendations.
