RYOUNGCA - Absolutely nothing wrong with following your rotation schedule that you are comfortable with. Using my cars as example (since I have only 6,000 miles on AI), if I rotate my tires at Discount Tires (free), I may get full 80,000 miles on car. But that never happens coz I bump into the 5-6 yr age issue before I hit 80,000. And if I do get max mileage, I have to replace all tires all at once. If I do not rotate, I may only get 2-3 yrs on the fronts. I would buy only 2 fronts, Discount Tire puts them in rear (as recommended) and move the old rears to the front. And the cycle continues. The overall purchase outlay is identical but I spend only 1/2 $ every 3 yrs. And my rear set is always new tires every 3 yrs.
