How often should you rotate your tires? Common knowledge dictates you should rotate your tires every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. Though this interval is a good ground rule, for more specific recommendations, you’ll want to check your Mercedes-Benz vehicle’s owner’s manual. Still want more information on when to rotate tires? This simple guide from the folks at Mercedes-Benz of St. Louis breaks down factors that impact tire rotation frequency.
When you hear the designations of front-wheel and rear-wheel drive, that simply conveys where power from the engine is sent. It’s sent to the front tires for a front-wheel drive car, while in a rear-wheel drive car, it’s sent to the rear tires. Whichever tires are getting the bulk of the engine power will wear faster than the others. Keep these tips in mind if you drive a FWD or RWD vehicle:
Not sure how many miles to rotate tires on an AWD model? They work a little differently than FWD and RWD models. Each AWD vehicle’s tire wears differently and at different speeds. The standard timeline for AWD tire rotations has been set at 3,000 to 5,000 miles by most experts. While these are good recommendations, remember to always check your owner’s manual for exact numbers.
If you’re not sure when you last performed a tire rotation, make sure to schedule service at Mercedes-Benz of St. Louis. We’ll perform an inspection to see if you’re due for a tire rotation and take care of your other service needs. Tires usually require a rotation once the tread variance exceeds 2/32 of an inch.
Keeping tire rotations as part of your maintenance plan helps you to better prepare for hazardous weather around Frontenac and Ladue. Keep in mind, however, that properly caring for your tires doesn’t mean they’ll last indefinitely. When you’re in need of a tire replacement, the Mercedes-Benz of St. Louis tire center can help!
