Default How often to rotate my tires?

Every oil change at 3K? My dealers service info says 7500.

I never owned a AWD car before.

thanks

My dealer said 7,500. That's likely because it lines up well with every 2nd oil change. My understanding is that 5,000-7,500 is okay, you just want to be consistent.

Yes.

I do mine every 5000. But here we have Les Swab's and they rotate for free.

Since I change oil/filter by calendar I don’t go by OCI, so I rotate by 5K increments. If you have someone do it, check (that they’re there to begin with) the lugnuts torque to 90-ft/lbs.

It's part of my free maintenance, so I let them do it every other oil change.

In the past, I would normally rotate at 15k miles. Tire nazis will be aghast, but I've always gotten beyond spec mileage out of my tires (once got 65k miles out of Z rated Contis). Tire and oil nazis are hardly ever correct in their OCD complexes.

The manual says every 7,500 miles for tire rotation and it says 7,500 for the oil changes so once I get to that point I'll be rotating each time I get an oil change.
