I bought a used 2018 JLU Sahara a couple weeks ago and it looks like the previous owner did not do a 5 tire rotation. It’s got 14k miles on it already. Am I too late to swap that 5th tire into rotation?
Of course not. You may be behind a bit but it can’t hurt unless the tires are badly worn.
Same boat here. Clown dealership can't count to five I guess. I plan on keeping what was the low mileage spare on the front left and front right through the next 2 or 3 rotations. Wear should even out by then.
Thanks, guys. I went ahead and swapped it out for one of the front ones that was slightly more worn than the other and will just keep it on the front (swapped to other side of course) for the next 2 or so rotations.Just measure the tread depth on all 5. From Google:
You can only have about a 3/32 tread difference between tires on any AWD or 4×4. The reason is with the different tread depth the tires will rotate at different rates and put un-wanted stress on the AWD drive train that can cause damage to it.
Measure it, and watch it. It's not really that hard.
And if it's in the front it will wear faster...which is why we rotate tires to begin with...
