Rear tyres are wider to balance weight, tires can not be rotated.

It is getting more difficult to be consistent with tire rotations when vehicle manufacturers are increasing the number of miles before an oil change. Great that oil changes are not required as frequently, but now that measure of time before tire rotation is fuzzied.

The tire center I buy my tires from recommends every 7,000 miles. So I try to get my tires rotated every 7,000 miles or sooner if I have been pulling a trailer or hauling a heavier load than normal.

I take my car to my local Big O Tires and have my tires rotated and balance every 5,000 miles faithfully. I believe it really does help to prolong the life of the tire.
