What is a tire rotation? A tire rotation is when your tires are moved from one position to another. In other words, a technician performing a tire rotation on your vehicle will move the tires from one wheel to another in a specific tire rotation pattern, such as from left to right, back to front, or diagonally. Porsche tire rotation helps to ensure even traction and tread-wear on each tire, prolonging the life of your Porsche tires, as well as improving ride quality and fuel economy.

How Often Should Tires Be Rotated?

Rules on how often to rotate tires will vary, as this depends on the specific vehicle and its guidelines. However, it’s recommended that you get your tires rotated when you come in for an oil change, even if you don’t see any wear on your tires.

Signs Your Porsche Needs a Tire Rotation

It’s important to err on the side of caution and get your tires rotated even when you don’t notice uneven treadwear. However, you should get a tire rotation as soon as you can if you observe uneven wear on tires. You can check for uneven wear by measuring the tread depth on each tire on different points of the tire. Your tires may have uneven wear if the measurements are markedly different.

You should also get your tires rotated as soon as possible if you notice increased tire noise and vibration. The noise and vibrations when driving will be very noticeable in the steering wheel.
