i rotate with every oil change ~5000 miles
Cool, I think I'll do mine in a similar interval. (basically aim for 5000 miles and hope I don't forget)
That's my problem, I always forget. Think I'm up to about 7500 on my new tires so hope to rotate this weekend. I do a 5k OCI so I should just rotate with the oil change but usually talk myself out of it. :gr_grin:
Definitely rotate often. My only problem with these are noise. But my KJ has been a bear to keep aligned...so that's a factor.
Everything else with these tires is beyond excellent. I got 70k from my first, P-rated set of 235/70/16s. I'm up to 265/70/16.

I read some people said they get noisy at like 20-30k. Hoping to avoid that, my KJ historically has always worn tires evenly. Cool to hear on the longevity, did they still perform well towards the end? It'd take me like 7 or 8 years to hit 60-70k on these, so I'm guessing they'll need to be replaced due to age first.
I always just set the EVIC service interval for 5000 - makes remembering a lot easier
Sounds like a plan. I'll try that starting tomorrow.
I'll try that too next OCI. Or just rotate the tires at 4000 mile intervals (what I have the EVIC set to). Is that too often?
Only if your lower back says it is.
I don't think you can rotate tires too often (within reason). I have my EVIC set for 5k and I'm at 4k so close enough. Pretty sure I've got about 7k since tire install. I'll get in sync tomorrow.
I use a jack now since I'm getting older... :gr_grin:
Mine get rotated at 3-4000 miles
Think thats what helped the Duratracs last so long
The only way I keep track of when to change the oil and rotate the tires is by using the trip computer. I get a reading for each oil change and you don't have to do the math from the odo.
Be careful not to wear your nuts out!!!
I hate it when that happens... :happy175:
Seriously, Mercedes Benz require wheel fastener replacement after every second torque sequence. They use those funky stud bolts that screw into the hub, no nuts.
Leave it to the Germans to overengineer things. Closest I'll ever get to a real German automobile experience are my German tires.
A guys got to take care of his nuts...
That's how my KL is, no idea if they need to be replacement, I do they won't be replaced. :happy175:
friend had those ATM on his truck, felt grippy in the white stuff when i drove it in 2 WD when new. I'd try them for sure.
