Seasonal Tire Change Over
Since many crossover all-wheel-drive vehicles are actually in front-wheel-drive mode most of the time, rotating the tires on these vehicles should be done often, since the front tires can be expected to wear more rapidly than the rear tires.
Rotating your tires can help maximize the life of your vehicle's tires while also contributing to a safer, smoother and more efficient ride.
During rotation, each tire and wheel is removed from your vehicle and moved to a different position to ensure that all tires wear evenly and last longer.
The reason for rotating tires is to equalize wear. Front tires wear a lot faster than rear tires because as you make turns there is more pressure on the outer edges of the front tires. In addition to normal driving, things like three-point turns, parallel parking, U-turns etc. put additional stresses on your front tires that your rear tires don't have to deal with.
