Rotating Tires on FWD and RWD Vehicles

Many drivers often wonder about the difference between FWD and RWD vehicles. When talking about the designations of rear- and front-wheel drive, it just means where the power from the engine is going. So, front-wheel drive cars will have the power sent to the front tires, whereas, rear-wheel drive vehicles have the power sent to the rear tires. The tires that get most of the engine power wears faster than the others. Whether you choose a FWD or RWD vehicle, it’s best to think about these tire rotation tips:

  • A tire rotation needs to be performed every 5,000 to 7,500 miles on FWD or RWD vehicles. Be sure to consult your owner’s manual for exact figures.
  • If you’re doing the tire rotation on a FWD car, keep in mind to flip sides when moving the rear tires. For example, the rear right tire will go on the front left. However, when moving the front tires to the back, keep them on the same side.
  • When rotating tires on a RWD car, invert the process above. Flip sides when moving the front tires to the back, but keep the rear tires on the same side when moving them forward.
  • Consider how your driving habits, like off-roading, affects how often a tire rotation is needed. Talk with the service experts at INFINITI of Boerne to get a better idea of a maintenance schedule that fits your driving habits.
