Do you rotate your tires as recommended or drive until it is time to buy more tires?

I rotate every oil change using synthetic oil only. so about 7-8000 miles

the last set of tires lasted 75,000 miles compared to 60,000 miles that was on the sticker of the tire when I bought it new.

I have my tires rotated every 5,000 miles at no charge. They are all wearing evenly. As others posted, I maintain the proper air pressure.

I had one idiot in Memphis last year at a Tire place and he started to rotate my tires for free bc I was getting my oil changed. He wanted to put my rear mud grips on front and reg. tires on the back....dumb chitheads. Before I had those mudgrips put on, I always had my tires rotated as scheduled.

I rotate every my tires at 10K miles (when I change the oil). I usually get 50K+ out of a set of tires.

Good idea keeps all tires wearing evenly will make tires last longer combined with keeping them inflated properly

My son has a Lexus that the tires can't be rotated on because the rear tires are a different size, and it came from the factory built this way.
