Not sure what rotation involves or why you might need it? No problem! Here, we'll explain everything you need to know - including some symptoms to look out for if you think it's time to rotate tyres.
How much does tyre rotation cost?
Having your front and rear tyres rotated generally costs between $50 - $100.
This price will usually also include balancing your tyres too.

What is tyre rotation?
Tyre rotation is the process of swapping the front and rear tyres. Sometimes, swapping the sides of the tyres is recommended too.
This is generally done because tyres wear at different rates. On most vehicles, front tyres wear quicker than the rears thanks to the fact that they do all the turning, most of the braking, and often much of the acceleration if your car is front-wheel drive. So, by swapping them, you'll get the maximum lifespan out of the tyres on the vehicle.
What are the benefits of tyre rotation?
Since rotating your tyres is optional, it's useful to know why people do it - so you can decide if it represents value for money for you.
1. Saving money
Rotating your tyres will usually result in getting additional miles of wear out of them.
Having tyres that at wearing at similar rates reduces the chance of heavily worn tyres failing - such as a blowout or puncture.
With more uniform wear on your tyres, handling will often be more predictable and safe.
4. Better mileage
Most tyre manufacturers recommend rotation because evenly wearing tyres are better for fuel economy.
5. Reduced road noise
Uneven tyre wear often leads to unwanted road noise - so rotating tyres will generally result in a quieter drive.
6.What does tyre rotation involve?
Generally, rotating tyres involves swapping the fronts with the rears. This is done by removing the wheels from the car and using a tyre mounting machine to quickly remove and replace the tyres.
If the tyres are wearing unevenly from side to side, then tyres that were originally on the drivers side of the vehicle will be swapped to the other side. This means that the wear on the tyres evens itself out.
The only exception to this is when vehicles are fitted with directional tyres. These types of tyres can only be mounted on the wheel one way - so swapping from side to side is not possible.
