Rotate Tires?

What's the general consensus on rotating the tires on your TT? If you rotate, do you just rotate front to rear?

Rotating tires on a trailer is not necessary. The same goes with cars and trucks unless you are seeing uneven wear which indicates another problem. In fact rotating tires may hide a problem from being discovered that needs to be corrected.

Agree, I wouldn’t worry about it, till you see one or more tires with excess wear compared to the others. Then you know something is going on. Correct tire pressure, greasing ( if wet bolts) a must along with bearing service..IMO

I rotate mine when I start seeing some uneven wear. In my experience that uneven wear has been from badly worn bushings. So when eventually the tires need to be replaced, I also replace the bushings and start with a clean slate. Just recently installed my 3rd set of tires and bushings at ~67K miles.

I got the time and tools so I tend to rotate mine once a year. I swap sides and front/rear. Don't know if it helps.
