Tire rotation

Some may think this is remedial but I'm curious what others are doing. I have a 2014 390-60 Berk with the upgraded Michelins. How often are others rotating the tires?
Thanks

I dont rotate. #1. I seem to trade too often to worry about it #2. If I didn't trade the tires more than likely will age out long before the tread wears out. ??

I haven't rotated tires, I'm not putting enough miles on them. Tire wear is very even, alignment seems okay, and as previously stated, I'll probably have to replace them from age rather than lack of tread.

Never. They age out before wearing out.

I can't find it at the moment but I saw something that the manufacturer said don't rotate.

In my opinion ... wheel covers are much more important than tire rotation on rvs.

Most rv owners will need to replace tires because of weather or sun damage on side walls long before treads wear out.

X2 and IMHO, Magna Shade makes the slickest looking tire covers out there (I hate the look of those white "tire bags!")

Wheel covers or white tire covers ?

RE rotating. In general, unless there is/was an alignment problem Class-A MH do not need to rotate tires.
