Have you ever wondered how many miles to rotate tires? When it comes to maintaining the performance and safety of your Land Rover, tire rotation is essential. As a general rule, tires should be rotated every 5,000-7,500 miles. Be sure to review the Land Rover recommended maintenance schedule, for model-specific figures. Additionally, the service center at Land Rover Princeton can recommend how often to rotate tires for your specific model and schedule the rotation for you.
What About Tires on an AWD Vehicle?
Having a vehicle with AWD doesn’t mean you’re off the hook for tire-rotation maintenance. Depending on conditions, AWD systems shift power between the front and rear wheels, therefore all four tires will not wear evenly. And the added weight of the vehicle’s engine will put more wear on front tires, as will the friction from steering.
While the AWD or 4WD Range Rover Sport offers better traction during infamous South Brunswick weather, its tires will need to be rotated more frequently. Most AWD or 4WD SUVs will need their tires rotated every 3,000-5,000 miles to maintain performance, stability, and traction.
Why Rotate Tires?
There are more advantages to rotating tires besides simply making them last longer. Regular tire rotations provide these added benefits:
- Frequently rotated tires produce less road noise
- Less drivetrain strain since the force will be delivered evenly to the wheels
- Properly rotated tires help your vehicle steer and handle better, which increases fuel efficiency
- A well-timed tire rotation just before winter will improve your traction on wet, slippery, and icy Mount Laurel roads
Land Rover makes it easy to maintain your vehicle’s performance, stability, and traction by including tire rotations in all its maintenance schedules. And when the time comes to replace your tires after they’ve worn from all your Mount Laurel-area journeys, be sure to check out the tire center at Land Rover Princeton. We offer performance tires designed for off-roading, speed, fuel economy, and more!
