Many people falsely assume that two-wheel drive vehicles are the only ones that need tire rotation services. But the reality is that all-wheel drive vehicles need to have their tires rotated just as frequently. For one, all-wheel drive vehicles do not use all four wheels evenly. Instead, many all-wheel drive vehicles distribute power only to the front or the rear axle until slippage occurs, at which point the torque distribution to each axle changes. Furthermore, remember that weight distribution is never perfectly even, and the end that bears the most weight will experience accelerated tire wear. Over time, this means that two of the tires will wear out faster than the other two unless they are taken to a car repair shop for a tire rotation service.
