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

Monitor tire wear and rotate as needed remembering that city round town driving is harder on tires than freeway driving....

used to aim for every other oil change but since switching to full synthetic oil change intervals are longer so I rotate with each oil change
