Replacing Subaru Tires

Subaru tires for sale in New Jersey

All-wheel drive is a convenient feature that comes standard on every new Subaru vehicle on our car lot (other than the BRZ sports coupe). It gives you increased traction on the road, especially in wet or snowy conditions, and it’s an integral part of what makes a Subaru a Subaru.

AWD does make one thing more difficult, though: replacing tires. Because the drivetrain sends engine power to all four wheels, rather than just two, it’s important that all tires wear equally. Here’s why.

Replacing Tires on an All-Wheel Drive Subaru

The front tires will wear more quickly: On all-wheel drive cars, the front tires will often lose tread a bit faster than the back ones. To counter this, frequent tire rotations are a good idea.

Differences in tire size can confuse the car: If you replace just one tire, or just the front or back tires, they will be slightly larger than the old ones since they aren’t worn down yet. Powering different-sized tires can be an additional strain on your drivetrain, and it can also trick your car’s internal sensors into thinking the tires are slipping. That can cause the car to attempt to lock the tires or put your car into a different gear, which can make things dangerous when you’re on the go.

Subaru Tire Replacement and Rotation

To avoid unnecessary difficulties, it’s vital to get your Subaru’s tires rotated frequently. If it has been a while since your last rotation, schedule tire rotation service with us soon. And, in the unfortunate situation where you end up with a flat tire, you may have to consider replacing all four to ensure safety.


Fortunately, at Subaru of Morristown, New Jersey drivers will find a great selection of new Subaru tires for sale at great prices.
