Tire Rotation

What is a Tire Rotation?

A tire rotation is a simple procedure that relocates your tires on your vehicle. Since the front and rear of the vehicle have different weights, it puts more pressure on two out of the four tires. Tires are rotated so that the weight becomes evenly distributed and so the tires can stay on the same schedule when it comes to their wear and degradation. That way, when the time comes to have your tires replaced, they’ll all be ready and in relatively the same condition.

How are My Volkswagen Tires Rotated?

During a tire rotation, your vehicle is raised while each of its tires are removed. However, their repositioning depends on the type of drive system you have. Front-Wheel Drive vehicles will have their front tires moved to the back while the rear tires are moved to the front on opposite sides (back right à front left).

All-Wheel Drive vehicles have a slightly different rotation pattern. The rear tires are moved forward while the front tires are pushed to the back opposing sides (front rightà back left).



The Best Time to Rotate Tires

While there’s no firm metric on the best time to rotate tires, how you drive and how often you drive can play a huge part in the process. Your tires are designed to last up to three to four years (12,000 to 15,000 miles), meaning you’ll have a few rotations with your set of tires.

However, the best way to ensure that you’re keeping up with the tire rotation and having them performed regularly is by timing it with your oil changes. Most Volkswagen models require an oil change every 5,000 to 8,000 miles, so when you’re scheduling this service, you can also have your tires rotated, too.

The Benefits of Having Your Tires Rotated

There are plenty of benefits that you get from having your Volkswagen tires rotated regularly. You’ll make sure that your tires are lasting you for years and miles and even out their wear. It also gives our technicians to measure the wear so they can provide service and help you prepare for the day that you’ll need to have your VW tires replaced.
