How and when should I rotate my tyres? | Point S Hong Kong

Point S Tyre FAQs: Tyre Rotation


Q: How often should I rotate my tyres?

A: Under normal circumstances, we recommend drivers to rotate their tyres once every 10,000km, to spread tyre wear evenly across all tyres, maximising their tread life and safety.

Q: What tyre rotation pattern should I use?

A: First of all, tyre rotation can only be executed when all 4 tyres are the same size. Asymmetric tyres can only rotate their tyres from front to rear, vice versa (on the same side).
Different car has different specifications, we recommend using the method that best suits your vehicle.
The rotation methods below are only applicable for non-directional tyres.
Forward Cross (Front-wheel drive vehicles)
-The front axle tyres are moved directly back while the rear tyres are moved up diagonally to the opposite side of the front axle.
(LF to LR, RF to RR, LR to RF, RR to LF)
Rearward Cross (Rear-wheel drive vehicles)
- Rear tyres are moved to the forward axle and kept on the same side of the vehicle while the front tyres are moved to opposite sides of the rear axle.
(LR to LF, RR to RF, LF to RR, RF to LR)
X-Pattern (Four-wheel drive vehicles)
- All tyres are moved diagonally, meaning tyres are switched from one axle to the opposite as well as being repositioned from one side to the other.
(LR to RF, RF to LR, LF to RR, RR to LF)
