Most Mitsubishi vehicles we offer at our North Hills dealership are front-wheel drive, meaning that the engine powers those wheels, although a few do come with all-wheel drive. SInce the front wheels are responsible for both turning and driving the vehicle forward, they can sometimes wear more aggressively than the two tires in back. Depending on the drivetrain of your vehicle, the front tires will stay in the same alignment when they’re moved to the rear, while the back tires will move from right to left and vice-versa.
In most cases, we recommend that if you’re keeping up with the maintenance schedule for oil changes, that you also go to a service center in Pittsburgh or North Hills that will rotate your tires at the same time. The intervals are listed in the owner’s manual for your 2020 Mitsubishi Mirage, Outlander and other vehicles. Generally speaking, you will want to do so about every 5,000 to 7,5000 miles.
We recommend using a service center with OEM parts for any service, not just tire rotation and balancing. They will have certified technicians who will be able to determine whether or not there is excessive wear on any of the tires while moving them to their new locations. This can help identify alignment and other issues before they become more expensive problems down the road.
