Mazda 3 Owners Manual: Tire Rotation

WARNING Rotate tires periodically: Irregular tire wear is dangerous. To equalize tread wear for maintaining good performance in handling and braking, rotate the tires every 12,000 km (7,500 miles). However Mazda recommends to rotate every 8,000 km (5,000 miles) to help increase tire life and distribute wear more evenly.

Refer to Scheduled Maintenance on

During rotation, inspect them for correct balance.
