When you decide you need to rotate your tires, there are a few things to keep in mind.
Some tires are unidirectional, meaning they can only be rotated from back to front. Other vehicles have different size tires on the front and back, they can only be rotated left to right. Be sure of what kind of tires you have before you rotate you tires.
Tire rotation time is also a good time to check your tires for any unusual wear or damage.
As always, when you’re finished, be sure to make a note in your owner’s log book.
Watch how tire rotation is done in the video.
