You NEED to rotate your tires. HOW & WHY

CNET’s Brian Cooley does and tells you why he’s a fan of this admittedly tedious chore: It makes your tires last a lot longer and perform a little better along the way.

    I go to Costco free tire rotation and balance for the life of the tires that we bought there

    Unfortunately, staggered arrangement from the factory dictates that my car simply replaces my tires after sufficient wear.

    How you deal with the sensor on the tires because it doesn't tell where the tires are ?

    Hmm…I agree and disagree…so yes tire rotation can help extend life and even wear but it depends on the car, rims, directional tires, miles driven per year. My meaning is for example I have an 80's Porsche that has the same sized tires all around but the front rims are narrower and at times I had directional tires so I'd literally have to dismount and remount 4 tires at $100 per pop and risk rim damage. I've had rim damage happen to a set of rims that just were refurbished and then taken to costco and they scratched every single rim on the installation machine…Next tires only last about 5 years before they dry rot so if you aren't going to wear the tires out by tread life it's another thing to think about.

    I think on a "normal car" with non directional tires and the same tires size on all rims go for it 🙂 but if you have directional tires, or a special use case it isn't as clear cut.

    I wish Cooley still reviewing cars like the old days😞

  • David McCarthy

    Overall I agree but just to debate with nobody, I've always had very even wear on my many cars and often didn't rotate, and then just needed to buy only two at a time. Now that I can afford it as an old guy I can rotate and buy all four at once. In my long experience, both methods work. Total miles gotten out of a tire will vary this way but so much goes into tire wear that there is no way to test that without two identical cars driven the same days on the same roads in the same way. The main thing I believe is whether a car is driven aggressively or if you baby it to get every mile of life out of the tires.

    Little disappointed he didn't talk about directional tread. Not all wheels can be moved to the other side of the car without unmounting and re-mounting the tires, something not easily done at home.
    I have 2 sets of wheels, summers and winters. When I change over in the spring and fall I do rotation at that time, but as both sets are directional tread, I only rotate front to back, never side to side.

    Very good video. Do I balance every year. Have two cars cost $200 every year for summer and winter tires switch. So I purchased jack from Costco now I need power tool to get the bolts. Any suggestions sir?

    The tires under torque stay on the same side, while the free rolling tires get crossed. With a 4X4, that means the rears go straight to the front and the fronts cross to the rear, same as a rear wheel drive vehicle, which is different than the AWD pattern. The major problem comes with DIRECTIONAL tread patterns, which is one reason I never recommended them much at the tire store. In order to rotate tires, you need to dismount and remount and rebalance 2 tires. Unless, of course, it's an AWD vehicle, then you need to dismount & mount, and rebalance all four tires. And we haven't touched on duallies, or working a full size spare into the rotation. Spoiler alert, if you have a dually, swap the rear INSIDE tires to the same side front, and take the front and move them to the rear outer, rear outer to rear inner.

    Omg Cooley get a haircut already 😂😂

    If the front and rear tires are of different size, then they can only be rotated from left to right.

    Just do it when you're changing between winter and summer tires. Why didn't he say that?

    Also don’t forget to rotate the air in your tires and check your blinker fluid… 😉🤣

    This video is the most dumbest thing ive seen!

    You can not cross change tires because most tires are unidirectional.

  • Jeffrey P
    October 29, 2020

    Aren’t tires directional? So you would need to take them off the rim to rotate them, not just move the whole wheel?

  • Howie Normus

    Some tires also have a rotation arrow on them so they must be rolling in the same direction after you have rotated them. Some owners manuals address that too.

    To be fair a 20 year study run bybthe dentist of America have shown that there isn't much need for floasing as in their control and tests thoae who flossed and those who didn't but always brushed twice a day and after most meals, saw similar teeth health and more commonly genetic factors were what caused any issue, issues i.e. bone density etc. But great video
