Tires should be rotated approximately every six months or six to eight-thousand miles. Doing so will move each tire to a different position on the vehicle, making sure the tires wear evenly, and ultimately last longer. Proper tire rotations are important for those drivers who like to save money, as regular rotations will result in less need for tires down the road, saving impressive sums of money. Should you choose to bypass regular rotations, you may not realize any impact immediately, but when the time comes to invest in a new set of tires, you'll be much more inclined to keep them rotated so you can avoid spending too much on tires.
In between tire rotations it is important to keep an eye on the treads as they wear down. While tire rotations can help to balance the wear of the tires, a set of bald or near-bald tires can be very detrimental to your vehicle and the overall safety of those within.
