look at your tires, and if you see uneven wear, rotate them

at that point its too late, do it at 3000 if your very hard driving and 5000 if your easy on them.

Every 4000 miles or so. I want the RE730's to last as long as they can. Allthough I kinda do want to burn em' up because S03's are next

Never. When I switch from winter to summer and vice versa, I put the better ones on the front. Thats it though. Stupid REO10's wont wear out!

I used to rotate them like every 1000 miles during autox/track season and every 3000 miles otherwise. I got just under 30K miles out of the RE010s (with some track/autox time on them!) so I must have been doing something right. Also, make sure to check pressure often.

I rotate mine often, maybe once every other month. But they are directional so they cant be rotated far... only on the same side.

if you're refering to me, my tires last me 6-8k miles/set. every 1-2k miles is roughly 1/6 to 1/4 the life of the tires. my rotation schedule is the same for the percentage of the life of the tires if yours last you 20-30k and you rotate every 5k miles.

overkill? I think not... any longer and the tires start to have weird wear patterns and I end up buying tires sooner than expected.

I swap my tires for the track tires at track events (~6 times a year), so whenever I put the street tires back on, I always put the ones with more tread on the front. Same thing in spring when I swap back from winter tires.

Every Autox/track...I inspect both my street and track tires and rotate if necessary.
I tend to be lazy during the winter.

hehe, if you buy tires from them, you get a great coverage plan. free roadside hazard warranty, free patch up when u get a nail, and free rotation for as long as the tire lasts. other stuff too but i dunno kno all of it, my parents get their tires there
