What is Front-Wheel Drive?

Front-Wheel drive is the power of your engine being sent to your front wheels. The Mazda3 front-wheel drive vehicle will offer stellar control and much better traction grip on the roads during inclimate weather. Additionally, FWD vehicles usually offer a better fuel economy. Just remember, your rear wheels in your Mazda3 sedan will not receive power by themselves.

Better handling and control is the ultimate result!

How to Rotate Tires on Front-Wheel Drive Vehicles?

Contact us for help if you need additional guidance if you plan to change your own tires. Below are the two steps you need to follow when you rotate tires on a front-wheel drive Mazda:

  1. Switch your front tires to the back, but keep them on the same exact side.
  2. Switch the back tires to the front of your vehicle, but this time you switch sides by moving left tire to the right, and right to the left.

Your tires will last much longer when you cross them this way and reduce wear on your tires.
