How to Rotate Tires

Tire Rotation

Just like regular oil changes, rotating your tires is essential to the health of your Acura. Whether you choose to learn how to rotate your tires at home, or you bring your vehicle in for a tire rotation here at our Acura North Scottsdale service center, this is an important part of vehicle ownership. In the following guide, discover why tire rotation is necessary and learn other helpful tips to keep your Acura vehicle running optimally throughout the area.



Why is Tire Rotation Necessary?

Tires don’t wear evenly. This is due to a variety of factors, including your personal driving style, where you drive, and your vehicle’s drivetrain. Consider how harder-working tires on a rear-wheel drivetrain would wear down much more quickly than the other two wheels, which are less active. This is just one example of what causes uneven wear. Rotating your tires helps maintain even wear on your tires, prolonging the tires’ life and health on Scottsdale roads.

Rotating Your Tires

To rotate your tires on the Acura RDX, or on any other vehicle, follow the steps below. For additional guidance or expertise, consult our Acura North Scottsdale service center or your owner’s manual.

  1. Collect your tools: car jack, lug nut wrench, jack stand, safety gloves, etc.
  2. Engage your parking brake as an extra safety precaution.
  3. Loosen the lug nuts on you four wheels, but don’t take them all the way off until the car is jacked. This makes removing the tires much easier.
  4. First lift one wheel with the car jack and place your jack stand underneath it. Do this for each wheel.
  5. Remove the tires. Use this time to check your PSI and inflate accordingly. Once filled, you can rotate your tires according to the appropriate pattern for your type of tires. Find this in your owner’s manual or consult an Acura factory-trained technician.
  6. Place the tire back onto the wheel mount. Screw the lug nuts on as tightly as possible by hand.
  7. Lower the car from the jack stands. Finish tightening with the lug wrench. Utilize the star-pattern method for the order in which you tighten the nuts to distribute the pressure evenly.
