Default Tire rotation on RT Zion 2016

Wondering what mileage do you guys rotate your tires? Zion 2016 dodge. Going in for a oil change you do every oil change.

Thanks

I rotate between 5-10,000 miles and coordinate with the oil changes. I have a RT Simplicity. I run 80 psi at rear and 65 psi at front. RAM dealer recommended rotation frequently due to weight of vehicle and high air pressures.

.

Do you drive it in the winter time?

You can rotate when you change from snow tires.

This may shock you, but I never routinely rotate my tires. If the alignment is right and the tires balanced, it helps only a little bit and is not worth the hassle or money--especially on a dually. The extra lifetime you gain is trivial compared to the magnitude of the chore. I occasionally do an "as needed" rotation if conditions justify it.

Life is too short.

I acquired this opinion many years ago from the writings of the great John Muir (The VW mechanic, not the photographer). I have never regretted it.

Agree, with 80,000+ tires for proof, a minivan with one rotation.
