Sometimes irregular tyre wear can be corrected by rotating your tyres. Consult your car's owner's manual, the tyre manufacturer, or your Toyo dealer for the appropriate pattern for your vehicle.
If your tyres show uneven wear, ask your Toyo dealer to check and correct any misalignment, imbalance, or other mechanical problem involved before rotation. Sometimes front and rear tyres on a vehicle use different pressures. After rotation, adjust individual tyre air pressures. The proper inflation section has more information.
The purpose of regularly rotating tyres is to achieve more uniform wear for all tyres on a vehicle. Before rotating your tyres, always refer to your individual owner's manual for rotation recommendations. If no rotation period or pattern is specified, you should consider rotating your tyres, front to back, every 10% wear or at least every 15% wear. Irregular wear may require more frequent rotation.
Popular Rotation Patterns
Sometimes tyres cannot be rotated according to popular patterns. Such tyres include uni-directional tires with asymmetric tread designs. Also, some vehicles may have different sized tyres mounted on the front and rear axles, and these different sized tires may also have rotation restrictions. Check your owner's manual or visit your Toyo dealer for recommendations for these special cases.
