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

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.

Once during 54K miles. Along with new brake pads, they had 15% lining left.

There are more options than that...mine are rotated when changing to/from winter tires. It means slightly less rotation than recommended for summer tires & a little quicker for winter tires ie. 10-15K on summers & 5-10K on winters.
As for rotating only for break-in...that's ludicrous & someone must have been pulling your leg. You rotate for evening out wear & uneven wear only gets worse as your car ages.

Rotating the tires is probably important during the first 5K of driving as they break in but after that I've read that it's less important.

I drove 27 thousand miles a year for 30 years. I inflate to whatever provides even tread wear. I have always rotated my tires half way through their life, and they are evenly worn when I replace. The less you let them fool around with your car the better off you and the car are.

Tire rotation about every 5,000 miles at oil change intervals. More important for front wheel drive vehicles because of higher tread wear on the front tires.
