It isn't that hard to tell that you didn't.

Buy your tires at Discount---they'll rotate 'em for free.

You must drive sideways a lot or use really soft tire compounds.

I've easily gotten 70K miles with a set of Michelin M+S and no treadwear indicators showing. Changed 'em mainly because they were getting old.

Re: Jeep tire warranty?????

My 2011 had Michelin tires, all four with even wear (32k) down to wear indicator mark. Americas Tire called tire mfg and they told us that no wear warranty for OEM tires on new purchase. They did however agree as good will to give me 45% discount on 1 tire and 35% discount on other 3 tires. Replaced with Bridge stone Duelers, could not be happier. Good luck

You kidding. You gotta still rotate. The forces on the tires are still way different. Now if we had 4 Wheel Steering you might have a point.

I still rotate just straight front to back though. Old School.

More problems seem to crop up if you change sides. I think if you do it VERY frequently you'd be ok. But I don't.

I got 70-80K out my stock tires on my 2002. Never aligned. 3 sets.

Might try that. I usually paint position info on the back of the wheel.
Maybe next time, I just paint the info as if they have been rotated.

Not enough wear at 6K miles to notice any differences on the 2014 with QD, and as soon as those Latitudes show enough wear they get replaced with either Michelin M+S or Conti Extreme DWS anyhoo.... those I might rotate.

Older ZJ with top of line 4wd definitely wore the fronts more than the rears.

sorry but i still feel as though rotating on a full time 4wd is almost useless. in my pickup the rears ALWAYS wear before the front ... in every rear wheel drive vehicle or other non full time 4wd vehicle, this happens. if ALL THE TIRES are wearing the same, a rotation is pointless, but they are your tires do it how you want.

now if the rears do wear faster then the fronts, by all means rotate, but never have i seen fronts wear faster then rear, EXCEPT on front wheel drives. and they seem to take extra wear vs the drive tires on a rwd.

rotating for the sake of rotating is redundant is all im saying.

It's not so much about the wear front to back as the chopping and cupping that the fronts get, that's the reason I rotate them. My wife's was showing wear like that at 3000 miles, although I waited until 5k to do it.
