Why are these rotations so important?

Rotating your tires is a crucial part of extending the life of your tires and enhancing your safety when on the road or the trails. Many tire mileage warranties actually require that you rotate them to keep the warranty valid.

When should I get my tires rotated?

Your owner's manual or service advisor at Lustine Toyota can help you find the right tire rotation schedule. The repositioning of the four tires on your Toyota model helps the tires wear evenly. When completed at the right intervals, the rotation will also ensure balanced handling and traction as well.

What is a tire rotation pattern?

There are a number of tire rotation patterns that can be followed, our technicians will pick the one that serves your vehicle the best. There are different patterns to choose from because typically, the front tires have a different job than the rear tires and front-wheel-drive vehicle's tires wear very differently than rear-wheel or all-wheel drive vehicles. The typical rule for a tire rotation is to cross the free-rolling axle. For example, on a front-wheel-drive vehicle the front tires will be rotated to the back and the front tires rotated to the rear but they swap sides. With a rear-wheel-drive vehicle, the opposite happens. A four-wheel drive or all-wheel drive vehicle utilizes a "double x" rotation pattern, right front and left rear tires switch positions, and the left front and right rear tires swap.
