Introduction

Tire rotation ensures even wear on the tires. Front and rear axles support different weights, and will wear differently. Rotating tires allows for even wear on a set of four tires, maximizing the lifespan of the set.

You should rotate your tires every five thousand to ten thousand miles to reduce uneven tire wear.

    • The saddle is the round metal part of the jack that moves upward as you pump the jack up.
