RWD Tire Rotations

With front-wheel drive vehicles, engine power is dispersed to the front tires, while it’s distributed to the rear tires for rear-wheel drive vehicles. Whichever tires are getting the bulk of the engine power are the ones that will experience increased wear. Should you drive a FWD or RWD vehicle, keep these tire rotation tips in mind:

  • Tire rotations for both RWD Porsche models need to be performed every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. Again, be sure to consult your owner’s manual for exact figures.
  • In a RWD car, you need to invert the process above when rotating the tires. Flip sides when moving the front tires to the back, but keep the rear tires on the same side when moving them forward.
  • Driving habits and terrain can also impact how often you should rotate your tires. If you find yourself pushing your Porsche hard on spirited drives, you may need more frequent tire rotations.

Tire Rotation Tips for AWD Vehicles

Not sure how many miles to rotate tires on an AWD model? Most experts set the standard timeline at 3,000 to 5,000 miles, as these vehicles work differently than Porsche RWD models, with power being distributed to all four wheels. Still, you’ll always want to check your owner’s manual for exact numbers for your specific vehicle. If you’re not sure the last time you had your tires rotated, schedule an appointment at Porsche Austin. Our technicians will examine your tires and determine if a rotation is necessary.

Why Rotate Your Tires?

Along with extending the lifespan of your tires, regular tire rotations can go a long way to improving your time in the driver’s seat. Benefits include:

  • Less noise on the road
  • Improved traction during poor road conditions
  • Prevents unnecessary stress on the drivetrain
