Rotating Tires on FWD and RWD Vehicles

The terms, front-wheel and rear-wheel drive simply mean where the power from the engine is being allocated to. For cars with front-wheel drive, the power is sent to the front tires. Vehicles with rear-wheel drive, the power is sent to the rear tires. Essentially, the tires allocated to receive the most amount of power will wear faster than the other ries. If you drive a RWD or FWD, keep in mind these tire rotation tips:

  • Cars with RWD or FWD need to have tires rotated every 8,000 to 12,000 kilometer. Make sure to look through your owner’s manual for the exact numbers for how many kilometres to rotate your tires.
  • When performing a FWD tire rotation, make sure to flip sides when you move the rear tires. For instance, the rear right tire will be moved to the front left side. However, when you move the front tires to the rear, keep them on the same side.
  • When performing a RWD tire rotation, reverse the process above. Flip sides when you move the front tires to the rear, but keep the rear tires on the same side when moving them to the front.
  • If you do off-road traveling, be mindful of how often you need to rotate your tires and when you to rotate your tires. Speak with one of our service technicians at Mercedes-Benz Brampton to understand a proper maintenance schedule that is appropriate for your driving habits.
