Tyre Rotation every 10k?

Recommended Posts

3rd Gear

Hi Guys,

 

got a question and need advice here. lets say car is FWD/RWD, rotate tyre at 10k.

does it make sense to rotate next at 30k?

since at 10k, lets say front tyre wear 20% and rear 10%, so after rotating and mileage at 20k, should be front and rear balanced, right?

i know driving style play a part during the 10-20k, just saying generally.

For those concerned about money, no rotation is needed.

When front tyres wear out, replaced 2 front tyres only.

Ditto for rear tyres.

 

Wheel balancing is needed per wheel, it's often done during a new tyre installation.

Which ever is convenient for you. 20K km should be ok cos 10K km like not much wear. Only tires going to the front will be balanced, tires going to the rear not necessary. Not sure for RWD cars. Tire shop guys told me every 15K km. So far two shops told me the same mileage. I do it where ever is convenient for me.

 

If you have TPMS the tire wear will be very even plus the tire rotation and balancing your set of tires can really last a long time. For Michelin at least.

I didn't rotate my last set for 2 years and I regretted it. When I removed them to change to a new set, the inside of front tyres were significantly more worn than the rear tyres. I also found a nail in one of the tires. I think it's good to rotate them every 10K and also take the opportunity to balance and check for nails. It makes sense from performance, maintenance and safety perspective.

1. Yes, for best results, please rotate every 10K - Cheap (15$) and it takes about 15 minutes only.

2. Rotation sequence changes wrt to FWD or RWD or AWD (refer to the picture below)

3. New tyres should always be put in the rear irrespective of FWD or RWD

You, RadX all atas, rotate the car itself instead of tyres  [:p]

I nvr rotate dont bother lol

 


Tyre rotation is based on the KMs and not on time scale. So PHV should also rotate at 10K and change tyres at 40/50k depending on the wear and tear.

 

I am not PHV, but normally I require to change every 30k or so because of heavy right foot.

If i drive PHV leh? every mth clock 10-20k mileage how?

For my previous car, I will ask my workshop to rotate the tyres during each 10k servicing.

 

Current car, still have free servicing with AD but I guess they also do tyre rotation during each servicing.

When it comes to replacement time just look for the treadwear marker on the tires. Cos sometimes you can't keep track of so many things.

Thanks just wanna know more, its not about cost since rotating cost $10-30.. but if my theory/thinking make sense or not. As rotating is to wear the tyre evenly, so first rotation at 10k, next at 30k and change tyre at 40k.

Every 10k rotation is universal rule to ensure that the tyres are properly checked out, balanced everytime to increase the overall life.

 

If we have staggered set up, we cannot recover as in the case of full 4 wheels rotation.

 

There are owners who do not do any rotation. So choice is yours. All the best. I would not take any chance in case of tyres.

If i drive PHV leh? every mth clock 10-20k mileage how?

 

if PHV i wouldn't bother to rotate. Assuming its FWD car, just change the fronts out when worn and replace them with the rears. the front rims get mounted with new tires and goes to the back.

 

New tires always at the rear.

when it hits the wear bars its approximately 2/32in left or about 1.6mm depth. according to google searches most tire manufacturers recommend having 3mm left for summer tires used in the wet.

 

since we get so much rain here, it is better to change around 3mm so that the aqua planning is kept to a minimum.

 

New tires start out with 8mm of thread depth.

I bought my PS4 from Soon Huat. Comes with free tyre rotation for life of tyre. Rotate every 10k km is recommended.  

 

As my annual mileage is low (12k per year), and I change tyres every 2.5 years due to the rubbers losing grip as it hardens in our weather, I end up doing a single rotation in the life time of the tyre. I time this for mid-life i.e between 12k to 15k km which is just over a year into its life.  Second half of tyre life, I drag a bit longer before replace, like 18k. By which time, I am less likely to push the car into corners like I do now.

 

I just rotated and re-balanced on my RWD car. Can't feel any difference between before and after. Still, is just a maintenance move to keep tyre wear even for the set for the next 15 months or so.

FYI, PHV rental cars workshop also don't rotate.

Check tyres.

If front wear, change front set, if rear wear, change rear set.

Sounds OK. Every 6mths 40-60k miles.

 

Too leichei to rotate every 1 mth.

FYI, PHV rental cars workshop also don't rotate.

Check tyres.

If front wear, change front set, if rear wear, change rear set.

Yup. Sounds OK not to rotate.
