Tires can vary in size, and direction whereas drive-trains come in front-wheel, rear-wheel, all-wheel, and four-wheel. All these factors come into play when building a tire rotation schedule.

This allows the tread to last longer and makes driving safer. Note some warranties require tire rotation at defined intervals. But what exactly is tire rotation and why is it important?
