TIRE ROTATION PATTERNS

Regular tire rotation helps to even out tread wear, which is important to prolonging the life of your tires and keeping them performing at their best.

Whether you are doing the job at home or bringing your vehicle in to have one of our professionals do the work for you, there are a few things to keep in mind.

  • While it is recommended to rotate your tires at every oil change, you should always follow the guidelines in your vehicle’s owner manual for both timing and the appropriate rotation pattern for your vehicle.
  • In cases where the tread depth on your front tires differ significantly from the tread depth on your rear tires, you should always position the tires with the most amount of tread on the rear.
  • While regularly rotating your tires can help to maintain an even amount of wear on all four tires, it can not correct irregular wear caused by worn mechanical parts, incorrect inflation pressures or alignment problems.

Learn How to Rotate Your Tires

There are four rotation patterns that cover most vehicles with non-directional tires and wheels that are the same size and offset.

1. Rear and Four-Wheel Drive

Rear or four-wheel drive vehicles that are equipped with non-directional tires and wheels should use the "Rearward Cross" or the alternative X rotation pattern.

2. Front-Wheel Drive

Front-wheel drive vehicles that are equipped with non-directional tires and wheels should use the "Forward Cross" or the alternative X rotation pattern.

3. Vehicles equipped with differently sized, non-directional tires and wheels on the front and rear axles

These vehicles (staggered fitment) should use the Side to Side rotation pattern.

4. Vehicles equipped with the same size directional

These vehicle's tires and wheels should use the Front to Rear rotation pattern.


Rotating your tires not only helps to prolong their lifespan, it can also help to improve fuel-efficiency and help to prevent tire blowout. Visit your local Pep Boys to schedule a rotation today!
