Every tire rotation is probably overkill. IF the car is tracking straight and you do not notice any abnormal wear on the inside or outside of the tire tread then you can probably get away with doing it twice a year. Normally after winter is over, since all the potholes seem to appear after winter, and then again at the end of summer going into fall or winter, since you ahve probably done more driving for vacation and things like that. You can do it every 12k but like you said it can be time consuming. Definitely get it done every time you ahve new tires installed.JMSinMD said:Cyorke,
Since you seem to have some good knowledge. I bought an alignment plan for 5 years unlimited. I usually have it done when I rotate and balance every 6k. Do you think this is overkill if my car is tracking straight and not pulling? Any harm on getting it done too often? Im thinking sticking to every 12k because it's time consuming. Jon.
