Tire Rotation question

I would like to know if I should rotate my tires and how to do it with four polished aluminum wheels?

The only way is to demount a total of 4 tires from the rims, remount them and rebalance. Generally I have been told to swap the front 2 for the pair on the right or left. Next time, swap the two fronts fro the other pair on the rear.

Generally, I just run the fronts until they need replacing and leave the duallies alone.

I have never rotated tires on MH.
Check occationally for odd or uneven wear - if found figure out why.

Unless you are having alignment issues. Your tires will time out long before they need rotating.

Some people do not read the rules about multiple postings Hal.

I think the question should be is "why is it in the Caterpillar engine section?"

Seeing that Myway09 has only 6 posts I would think he was having a problem figuring out how to post let alone the section he should be in. I'm sure all this do right stuff made him feel right at home.
I hope he keeps right on posting and gets the help he is looking for. This is supposed to be a friendly, helpful forum !!

I've got 60,000 on mine and don't rotate.

I did replace the fronts about 10,000 miles ago due to an alignment problem but the rear duels are staying where they are.

All of them are wearing even.

As far as the post in the wrong section I did that on a hitch post I put up a month or so ago. Couldn't figure out how to move it but the moderators noticed and moved it for me.

After seeing a man running, and winning, in the Olympic's who had no legs I think a post in the wrong section is no biggie.

At least the poster getting some answers to his question which is why we joined irv2. On my RV the fronts were showing signs of wear and the truck shop moved the fronts to the inside rear duals. I had all tires balanced at that time so it was not a major item to move the fronts to the steel rims used on the inside dual.

I don't believe in rotating tires on my Cat.

Very few RVers drive enough to wear out tires before they die of old age (About 6-8 years max) so the best way to rotate them is to rotate the old tires to the recycler and rotate brand new tires onto the rig every so many years.. Even if they don't need it.

Some folks look at the condition of the sidewalls... To be honest that is not the part that holds the air in, if there is pressure against the inside of the side wall your tire will blow within 1 second (normally) the cords and the inner liner are what hold the pressure in. and you can not see that without a dismount. IN fact some of it.. Well..If you see the cords time for a new tire. (That sucker is shot).

Now on the flip side of this is how best to extend the life of the tire.....

Drive on it (of course) this flexes the rubber and brings natural oils and such to the surface, these protect the tire better than any spray, or wipe on or other device man made
