FWD and RWD Vehicle Tire Rotations

Front-wheel-drive (FWD) and rear-wheel-drive (RWD) simply indicate where engine power is directed. In a front-wheel-drive vehicle, force is propelled towards the front tires. In a rear-wheel-drive vehicle, power is directed towards the rear wheel tires. As you may have guessed, the set of tires receiving the most force wears down faster than the opposite tire set. For both front-wheel-drive and rear-wheel-drive cars, rotating tires every 5,000 to 7,500 miles remains a good rule of thumb. You’ll want to consult your vehicle owner’s manual for specific figures, however, before you head out on Albany and Douglas roads.
