When To Rotate Tires on AWD, FWD, & RWD Vehicles

AWD, FWD, and RWD are short for all wheel drive, front wheel drive, and rear wheel drive. Depending on what drivetrain your vehicle has, it just means where power is sent to each wheel. AWD is when power is sent to all four wheels, and so on and so forth. If you have FWD or RWD, the front or rear wheels will wear quicker than the others so the mileage between tire rotations will differ from AWD vehicles. Let’s take a look at some tips and how many miles to rotate tires to tackle roads below:


  • The estimated tire rotation interval is every 5,000-7,500 miles, but keep in mind this can vary depending on your exact vehicle.
  • When performing a FWD tire rotation, be sure to flip the sides when moving the rear tires. In this case, the right rear tire will go on the front left and when moving the front tires to the back, they should remain on the same side.


  • If you’re wondering how often should you rotate your tires on a RWD vehicle? It should be about every 5,000-7,500 miles. Be sure to consult your owner’s manual for exact figures.
  • When rotating RWD tires, you flip the sides when moving the front tires to the rear and keep the rear tires on the same side when moving them to the front.


  • The standard tire rotation interval for AWD vehicles is about 3,000-5,000 miles, but as always, this can vary depending on your specific model.
  • We recommend working with a professional for specifics on rotating your AWD vehicle tires.

While these are the standard mileage for rotating your vehicle’s tires, other factors may affect when to rotate tires such as off-roading or extreme use. If you still have questions about how often should you rotate your tires, contact our service team at Dale Earnhardt Jr. Chevrolet.
