Tire rotation?

I have a 2017 Leprachaun class C. How often does everyone rotate the tires. I have Generals with 37000 miles and they look great. Only rotated once the dealer says they are wearing so good don't need to rotate.

Tire rotation is recommended only when tire wear is uneven. Moving to different positions will tend to even out the wear.

Problem is with dual wheel vehicles. Mixing steer axle tire/wheels with rear wheels can create a dimension mismatch which could create more issues.

Best to monitor wear regularly and if you notice strange wear (usually on steer axle tires) get the cause addressed. Usually inflation pressures, suspension component wear, and/or alignment.

Rotation is usually only done in single wheel configuration but that's not to say dual's can't be rotated too. Just not common.

Thanks Titan, that's what I thought.
