When should tires be rotated?

Have your tires rotated every 5,000 to 8,000 miles. The precise number is different for each car. When you get your oil changed, have the mechanic check and see if it's time to rotate.

When do tires need to be replaced?

Your tires should last you for quite a while if you get them regularly rotated. You'll still want to get them replaced every 5 years though, especially if you drive a lot in snow or rain.

How do tires influence gas mileage?

Be sure to keep your tire pressure at the manufacturer's recommended level. Your gas mileage is directly affected by your tire pressure, so make sure it's not too low or too high.

Why is my tire maintenance warning light on?

The warning light may be on for any of the following reasons:

  • An sudden change in weather
  • You've exceeded the mileage setting between tire rotations
  • Your tires are over or underinflated

What wears out car tires?

Tires will wear down faster if they're underinflated, overinflated, or misaligned. Tires naturally wear out over time, but if you see that they are wearing out too quickly, check the tire pressure and alignment.
