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

About once a year since retired unless I see abnormal wear and then I will rotate them right away.

Yes, just rotated the tires on my truck myself yesterday. This gives me insight to look them over and clean and wax up the inside/outside of the wheels also. The new vehicle gets down by the dealer during normal maintenance.

Keep them rotated, tires wear differently on the front and the rear. Keep up with rotation cycle and keep the tire pressure up for the longest life of your tires.

Every 3-4 thousand miles, it does help save the tires.

I recently learned its a lot cheaper to have your tires rotated then to buy a new set because you didnt rotate them.
