    How often do you rotate your tires?

    Just curious...
    The OEM tires on my 3rd gen were done at 22k.
    I have new set of the Dueler HL and I love them.
    Plenty of meat for snow/rain and very smooth for a daily commute.
    I want to get as many miles out of them as possible!

    What's it say in the owner's manual? I swap to snow tires/wheels in November and back to the OE Duelers in March, so they get rotated then. I'd say every 8K miles is often enough otherwise. You want to get each tire at each position once before it wears out.

    For me, just to make my life easier, I rotate the tires with every oil change. Since I use Synthetic Oil, I change the oil / rotate the tires every 5000 miles.

    That works if you change your oil every 5k but with the Gen 3 I haven't gotten below 10k on oil changes yet. So to make life simple I just do it every 5k - takes all of 25 minutes even torquing them to correct specs.

    I think the OP had issue with the OEM tires; Mine were toast at 24k and I followed the MM on rotation - MUCH TOO long although the deullers were horrid tires.

    Gen 3 No Spec!

    One of the weaknesses of the Generation 3 Maintenance Minder is that there is no maintenance schedule. You are to rotate tires when change oil. In Badgerland's case that is 10 K, but our friend out in Hollywood, Roman, could be rotating them every 4,400 miles.

    I am too damned lazy so mine get rotated with the winter tire / summer tire change. After I get better summer tires, I may make an effort to rotate them once in the middle of the summer. I am still wearing out the OEM Duelers

    measure it

    Just measure the tread life of the tires and decide if you need to rotate or not. Easiest way is to just grab a penny or match or similiar and fingernail the remaining tread depth. Compare to the fronts and decide. If they are equal, then nothing is required. If they are different, then rotate. This is easier if you have directional tires (like me!) and can only rotate fronts to backs.

    Mile interval rotations only work if you consistantly keep up with this and if your drive is always the same for each interval. I always have some crazy trips thrown in that add to treadwear, so my drives are not consistant.

    I rotate them every 6 months (~8000 miles) ... but just because I have 2 sets of wheels (summer & winter)

    Industry standard for tire rotation is 5,000 to 6,000 miles.

    Mine are done every 5,000-8,000 miles on my CRV.

    Every 5000 on my truck with mud tires.
