How Often Do I Need To Get My Tires Rotated?

825 × 550

Short Answer: Every six months or every 6,000 to 8,000 miles. Most technicians suggest every time you get an oil change.

Long Answer: Logic would suggest that, because all four tires are on the ground at the same time, they would wear evenly. Unfortunately, they don't. On most vehicles the front tires wear faster and, depending on your driving style, a certain side may take more damage than the other. In order to keep all of your tires wearing evenly, you should have them rotated often.

Most technicians suggest having your tries rotated every time you have your oil changed. Oil changes on BMW models should be around the 7,500-mile mark, which rests in the middle of the recommended 6,000 to 8,000-mile time limit for rotations. And, since the technicians will already be under your vehicle, it provides the perfect opportunity to perform a quick switch.

Since our BMW Gallery Of Norwood dealership is located in Massachusetts, serving Greater Boston, Franklin, Needham, Milton, and Sharon, we do see a lot of tire changes, from summer to winter. If you like to brave the year in all-seasons, then you'll most definitely want to get them rotated every oil change, to keep them in good working order.

What Happens If I Don't Have My Tires Rotated?

If you decide to forgo a tire rotation it could lead to many different problems. Wear can lead to uneven driving, could result in a popped tire, and will force you to have to buy new tires sooner, which is more money out of your pocket.
