What is a Tire Rotation?

You may be wondering, “What is a tire rotation and why are they important?” As you take your daily commutes and weekend getaways around Hurst, your driving habits and the condition of the road cause your tires to wear unevenly. More specifically, your front tires will wear more than your rear tires as the outer edges of the front tires receive more impact when turning. A routine Mazda tire rotation is important because it allows them to wear down at more consistent rates while allowing you to maintain good performance when handling and braking.

How Often Should You Rotate Your Tires?

The type of drivetrain system your Mazda is equipped with affects your tire rotation schedule. You’ll find that front- and rear-wheel drive vehicles need to rotate 5,000-7,500 miles, while all-wheel drive vehicles will require more frequent changes every 3,000-5,000 miles as all tires are engaged during your time on the road. However, keep in mind that your driving habits can affect how your tires wear. Here are some factors that affect how often you should rotate your tires:

  • Excessive braking
  • Sudden accelerating
  • Racing
  • Hard cornering
  • Off-roading

How to Rotate Tires: Tire Rotation Pattern

How to rotate your tires depends on your vehicle’s drivetrain and the type of tires your model is equipped with. The owner’s manual has the specific tire rotation pattern recommended for your Mazda, but here’s the general pattern for FWD and RWD tires:

  • FWD Tires: The front tires of your vehicle will move to the rear position in the same left/right positions. As the rear tires move to the front position, you’ll need to switch the right and left tire positions.
  • RWD Tires: The opposite is true for RWD vehicles. As the rear tires move to the front of the car in the same left/right positions, the front tires will move to the back while switching left and right tire positions.

Checking of Your Tires

Irregular tire wear can be dangerous, keep these tips in mind to stay on top of your tire health:

  • Check your tire pressure before a long trip or hauling
  • Check your tire tread using the penny method; it should be more than 2/32-inch tread depth
  • Check for any cuts or cracks in the tread and sidewall
