    Hey guys, how often should you I do a tire rotation?

    I just got new BFG G-force 205/45zr/16's for this spring/summer . . oh, and my car is slightly lowered at 1.8in all around (dont know if it matters).'



    thanks

    I like to do it every other oil change. Then if you use directional tyres, I tend to flip them on the wheels after 15-20k miles or when they look about half way done.

    not if you go to the tire store and have them flip each on each rim.

    personally, i think it's over rated. when my tires start to wear weird, i replace them. but, most folks arne't like me.

    I don't flip them on the wheels- I usually don't have severe enough camber wear to justify it, and if you do and you flip them, you're just reducing your contact patch.
