Both Michelin and Goodyear dealers told me to not rotate the tires. They'll time out before the normal rotation mileage. Also duals need to match wear (as mentioned earlier).

One day I hope to wear out a set. However, work keeps getting in the way.......

FWIW, the only rotation I do on my coach tires happens when I go from any cold weather farther South to find warmer weather.

Other than that, you don't need it.

Getting the maximum mileage out of each tire probably would save less than the cost of having them rotated.
I never rotate.. anything, no car or Truck or MH tires.

OOPS. How could I forget THAT!!

However the new direction (no pun intended) is for asymmetrical tires.

Just like a lot of other things in life it's a personal choice.
