Rotate Car Tires on Your Own
Today I’m going to show you how to rotate your tires on your vehicle.
This video is NOT for you if you have staggered tires (the ones on the front are a different size than the ones on the back) or if you don’t have all the equipment to safely lift the vehicle.
By the end of this video, you’re going to be able to tell when it’s time to rotate or change your tires. Your best tires need to be on the same axle your drivetrain is on. Meaning: if when you step on the gas your front wheels spin your best tires need to be on the front so they can have the best grip.

Hydraulic car lifts are generally safer than standard scissor jacks because it can lift a vehicle safely without the risk of falling off the jack. I use the lift to rotate car tires in this video.
The tire iron that comes with your vehicle is useful but isn’t the easiest to use when loosening your lug nuts. The crossbar lug wrench let’s you use both hands at the same time, making putting on and removing tires easier.
