By switching your front and rear tyres, you will ensure they wear evenly. Thus they will last longer. But be careful to follow some strict rules.

On a front-wheel drive, the front tyres wear more quickly than the rear tyres. For this reason, we recommend switching them every 6000 to 7500 miles or at least once a year. For example, when fitting or removing winter tyres. This makes the tyres wear more evenly and helps them last longer.

However, rotation must follow specific rules depending on the vehicle and type of tyre. It may be diagonal or lateral.
