Buick Encore: Wheels and Tires / Tire Rotation

Buick Encore 2020-2024 Owner's Manual / Vehicle Care / Wheels and Tires / Tire Rotation

Tires should be rotated every 12 000 km (7,500 mi). See Maintenance Schedule.

Tires are rotated to achieve a more uniform wear for all tires. The first rotation is the most important.

Anytime unusual wear is noticed, rotate the tires as soon as possible, check for proper tire inflation pressure, and check for damaged tires or wheels. If the unusual wear continues after the rotation, check the wheel alignment. See When It Is Time for New Tires and Wheel Replacement.

Buick Encore. Tire Rotation

Use this rotation pattern when rotating the tires.

Do not include the compact spare tire in the tire rotation.

Adjust the front and rear tires to the recommended inflation pressure on the Tire and Loading Information label after the tires have been rotated. See Tire Pressure and Vehicle Load Limits.

Reset the Tire Pressure Monitor System. See Tire Pressure Monitor Operation.

Check that all wheel nuts are properly tightened. See “Wheel Nut Torque” under Capacities and Specifications, and “Removing the Flat Tire and Installing the Spare Tire” under Tire Changing.

Warning

Rust or dirt on a wheel, or on the parts to which it is fastened, can cause wheel nuts to become loose over time. The wheel could come off and cause a crash. When changing a wheel, remove any rust or dirt from places where the wheel attaches to the vehicle. In an emergency, a cloth or paper towel can be used; however, use a scraper or wire brush later to remove all rust or dirt.

Lightly coat the inner diameter of the wheel hub opening with wheel bearing grease after a wheel change or tire rotation to prevent corrosion or rust buildup.

Warning

Do not apply grease to the wheel mounting surface, wheel conical seats, or the wheel nuts or bolts. Grease applied to these areas could cause a wheel to become loose or come off, resulting in a crash.

    Tire Inspection

    We recommend that the tires, including the spare tire, if the vehicle has one, be inspected for signs of wear or damage at least once a month. Replace the tire if: The indicators at three or more places around the tire can be seen...

    When It Is Time for New Tires

    Factors, such as maintenance, temperatures, driving speeds, vehicle loading, and road conditions affect the wear rate of the tires. Treadwear indicators are one way to tell when it is time for new tires...
