Rotate your tires according to your SUV's owners manual suggestions. Most often the interval is every 6,000 miles. The reason for rotating your tires is simple. It can greatly extend the life of your expensive tires.

Follow your owners manual or tire manufacturers recommendations about how to rotate the tires. Many require a same-side front to back exchange as shown in the top photograph. Others recommend a crisscross exchange.

It would be easier if you took your SUV to the dealer or the place where you bought your tires for tire rotation. In most cases this is a free service and they have the tools and expertise to do this correctly.

DANGER: If you rotate the tires on your SUV yourself, always assure that you have properly supported the vehicle. Do not get under the vehicle without having at least two sources of support to assure that the vehicle will not fall on you.

CAUTION: If you rotate the tires yourself on your SUV, always assure that you retighten the lug nuts on the wheels according the the manufactures suggestions. Use a torque wrench as shown in the bottom photograph to assure the nuts are tightened evenly.
