I want my balloon tires to die in a fire, so I have an excuse to get new ones.
I don't actually want them to die in a fire though, because they ARE attached to my car...

I tried to do mine every 6,000 or so. It does help them last longer, at least the front tires.

I rotate them every oil change usually... since I take of the wheels to check the brakes and what not, might as well rotate.

So that means you rotate them every month, right?

Yep. One nice thing about working @ the dealership. Last week of every month I just change the oil, regardless of how many miles are on it.

You don't have an option for "Whenever the front tires are balder than my pops"...

lol, I rotate them every 6k or so on my MR2 to get an extra 3000 miles out of them.

Pff I never do, why would you rotate staggered wheels? Granted the car is never on the road long enough to rotate, but unless I rotate from side to side due to excessive wear on one side it will never happen :P

because if I didn't go a right to left, then I would be changing my tires in my 2 every 8k miles

I can't. Having directional tires on an MR2 means I have one less thing to worry about for now.

I've had bad luck with tires since I got the Celica. I've had to buy new tires every year since I got them for one reason or another.

You can, but in my mind it is not worth remounting them just to rotate from side to side

I do it whenever I change the oil...I hate it when I see different tread depths on different tires....

I finally rotated my tires! Because the fronts were very nearly bald.

I also ALMOST put a hole in my car because the jack spot was so rusty it started to cave in on itself.

I never keep tyres long enough on my car to have them rotated..unless you have an option for me to select that says "every other track day" (auto-x).
