To rotate or not? That is the question.

I have a 2018 Jayco Class C Greyhawk 29MVP. 8500 miles. Should I rotate the tires or not. They are all the same size. Front we switch. Rear same way. I would normally have around 4k miles on it put took a big trip this summer. Tires look great. I don't see myself putting on more than a few 100 more miles this season. Soon it will be three years old. Whats the best option here. Running great though.

To much work for tires that will age out before they wear out.

Then there's the different size issues with the duals.
You don't want different size tires together and you don't want different size pairs on each side in the rear.

Tire rotation is used to even the tire wear so all the tires wear at a similar rate. Motorhome tires generally do not wear out. Instead their age eventually make them dangerous. 7 to 10 years is the accepted life expectancy.

If I read your post correctly you have 8500 miles in three years. In ten years at that rate your tires will have less than 30K miles. You are probably not going to wear them out regardless of rotation or not!

I wouldn't bother.

As noted, you will age out before you wear them out. With the dual rear wheels, you have to unmount the tires from the rims. The front and rear rims are not the same, so it is not a matter of just unbolting and rebolting.

Not always true that front and rear wheels are different. It depends. Mine are all the same.

Rotate tires ONLY, repeat ONLY if there is enough uneven wear (generally on fronts) to cause ride/handling issues before tire replacement time.
