Why Change and Rotate Tires

Your Toyota’s tires are vital in the performance and handling of your vehicle. When it comes time to replace your tires, Toyota recommends that you replace them with the same tires that came on your vehicle. If you need another type of tire for your lifestyle demands, Vista Toyota will suggest you get an OEM Toyota tire. The importance of OEM Toyota tires is that they will ensure optimal performance of your vehicle, meaning you will accelerate, corner, and brake properly and safely.

Depending on your lifestyle demands and driving habits, it is recommended to replace your tires every six years. During the lifetime of your tires, you should get tire rotations every 7,500 miles, or when you get your oil changed. Keeping up with your tire maintenance and replacements will help them wear evenly, and maintain the longevity and safety of your tires and vehicle.

Don’t wait, worn tires can negatively affect the acceleration, braking, and cornering of your vehicle. When your tires are in good condition and maintained properly, it will improve your stopping distance, therefore improving your safety behind the wheel.

Toyota Tire Types

Toyota offers several approved Toyota OEM tire types, each designed to satisfy your lifestyle demands and vehicle needs. Most tires are all-season tires, designed to deliver a smooth, quiet, reliable, and long-lasting ride. Other available tires are designed for more specific needs. Tires designed specifically for your Toyota include:

All-Season Tires

Toyota-approved all-season tires deliver a tire that will easily transition from summer to winter tires. These tires provide traction and grip on both wet and dry roads, but will not provide optimal safety on roads with snow or ice.

Seasonal (Summer & Winter) Tires

If you live in a warmer climate, that doesn’t often experience snow and ice, summer tires are likely the best for your Toyota. These tires perform best on dry roads, though they can also perform during rain. Summer tires feature a distinguishable detailed groove pattern.

Winter tires are designed to perform best in cold and wet climates. These tires are crafted with additional grip and traction, so your vehicle will safely and confidently perform on roads with snow and ice. Winter tires feature more cuts and intricacies in their tread.


Most sport model Toyota models, such as the GR Supra, feature performance tires. These tires give drivers better handling and endurance at faster speeds than typical tires. Performance tires deliver better cornering abilities and come in sub-types such as performance, high-performance, ultra-high performance, and competition.


Off-road tires are featured on Toyota models such as the Tacoma, Tundra, and 4Runner. These tires provide drivers with the best gripping, handling, and traction in off-road environments. Off-Road tires are designed with the loudest and most aggressive tread pattern, which contribute to gripping abilities on a variety of terrain.

Tire Wear Warning Signs

As your tires wear, there will be warning signs and indications that you will notice. You will begin to get decreased fuel efficiency, and poor handling, and you might hear uncommon noises. Vista Toyota recommends that you bring your vehicle to our Service Center as soon as possible if you notice the following signs:

  • Less traction or less responsive braking
  • Poor handling in wet weather
  • Your Toyota’s ride is rougher or noisier
  • Less control while cornering
  • Less tread on your tires

Toyota Tire FAQs

It is recommended that your tires be rotated every 5,000 to 8,000 miles, but the exact figure can vary from one vehicle to another. It is best to have your tires inspected when you bring your vehicle in for an oil change, this will indicate whether your tires should be rotated or changed.

Time will wear down your tires, but that doesn’t mean you can’t slow it down. Check your pressure and alignment regularly. If your tires are underinflated, overinflated, or misaligned, you will notice quicker wear and tear.

You should try to check your tire pressure before driving at least once a month and more often when it’s cold.

If you have your Toyota’s tires rotated regularly, they should last for approximately six years. However, if you often drive in the snow or rain, your tires may experience faster wear and tear.

As your tires wear or become deflated, your mileage will reduce due to poor traction. The less traction, the more energy your car needs to put into moving.

The following reasons will cause your tire maintenance warning light to come on:

  • A change in weather.
  • You’ve exceeded the mileage setting between tire rotations.
  • Your tires are over or under-inflated.

Wheel alignments ensure that your tires are properly angled to each other.

If you’ve noticed your vehicle pulling to one side, poor steering responses, or unusual wear on your front tire, bring your car in immediately to see if your wheel has become misaligned.
