Rotation

Just like a correctly aligned vehicle, consistently rotated tires can also help prevent irregular tire wear. Even if your vehicle is properly aligned, tires wear differently depending on their position on your vehicle.

There are all sorts of variables that cause uneven wear-weight differences from front to back, right turns being tighter than left turns-and switching up a tire's position helps distribute wear among all four tires.

A good rule of thumb is to rotate your tires every 5,000 to 6,000 miles. But many automakers recommend specific rotation intervals and patterns, so you should check your owner's manual.
