Re: Tire Rotation - How Often?

I have NEVER rotated tires on any of my cars, last pair I changed had over 80,000km on them (but this was on a Holden / Pontiac) so yeah, not entirely convinced its required at all tbh.

With a heavier suv or truck with AT or offroad tires rotations are defiantly needed. The wear on the front tires from turns is very noticeable with a heavier engine up higher then in cars and causes more of a pitch in turns.

Plus who keeps tires for 80k miles?!?? Is there any tread left?

Actually the poster said 80,000 kilometers which if I remember from my schooling is about 3.4 million miles give or take a hundred.

Re: Tire Rotation - How Often?

I know this sounds lame, but I don't rotate tires all too often. And when I do, I rank the tire wear, switch the worst with the best, then the other two.

Re: Tire Rotation - How Often?

I do mine at Pep-Boys every 10k or 6 months. They do it free there and I just go to Sams club next door and get my shopping done while its in there. I only put 7k a year on the jeep so the 6 month comes sooner.

Re: Tire Rotation - How Often?

Which way are we supposed to rotate?

Rears to the front. I get that part.

But are we supposed to move the fronts to the opposite side on the rear?
