How Often Should I Schedule Service To Rotate the Tires On My Nissan?

When customers come in for a Nissan service appointment at our dealership, there’s one question that arises quite often: how often should I rotate my tires? Now there’s a short explanation for that answer that our certified technicians can provide, which is about every 5,000 to 8,000 miles. It’s usually a safe bet to get it done every time you bring your vehicle in for a routine oil change. However, there are certain factors that can change how often you need to get your tires rotated.

Why Do I Need My Tires Rotated

It’s a good idea to understand why this routine maintenance is so important for your vehicle. Tires are made of rubber and the friction between them and the road wears down the tread over time. The reason they need to be rotated is that they don’t wear out at the same time, so if you didn’t rotate them, you end up with uneven tires. That leads to less control and lower fuel economy, which can be dangerous if not addressed, especially in all-wheel drive and 4WD Nissan vehicles.

That’s why it is important to schedule a service appointment and get your tires rotated on a regular basis. It allows you to get more life out of each set of tires, and helps your vehicle perform at its highest level. You don’t want to lose control while going around a turn just because your tires haven’t been rotated.

So if the range is 5,000 – 8,000 miles, then how do you know when to rotate your tires? It depends on how you drive. If you spend most of your time cruising the highway, then you can probably wait a littler longer. But if you spend a lot of time doing stop-and-go driving around Santa Fe, then you should consider doing it more often due to the strain caused by all those sudden starts and stops.
