Who has rotated their tires so far that has 5,000 miles on her or more? Manual says to rotate every 5,000 miles. We have 400 more to go......

I have always rotated all the tires on my prior Mustangs at 6K. I get a lot more tread life than the old every 12K thought process that Ford used to recomend.

Synth Oil-change, Zaino, Rotate Tires every 4K miles. Has kept all my rides looking and running good for years.

I've always done mine every other oil change and never had a problem.

We're supposed to rotate our tires? LOL. On my last Mustang ('5.0 LX 5 speed) I had to replace my rear tires at 6,000 miles. Front ones lasted 25,000 miles.

I think the only way I'm gonna get more miles out of the rear tires on my '00 GT is if I leave the Traction Control on and stop going to the drag strip.

I forgot to ask, what's the best way to thoroughly clean molten rubber off my rear fenders and inner wheel wells?

Again.. Good ol' WD-40 will take it all off. Nothing like a spray can full or petroleum based product to cure what ails you. Just be sure to have a bucket of soapy water handy and as soon as you clean off the tar/bugs/rubber with the WD-40, wash the area really well.
I found that I could roll the big bits of rubber off with the palm of my hand after I visited the track first.
Give it a shot.

Vicki,

In my case, 100% of my tire wear is from the 35 year old boy that drives my GT (me - :lol:).

Thanks for the tips on removing "the evidence of my misbehavior."

Only reason you want to rotate tires are you want all your tires to wear out evenly. But when time to buy new tire you would most likely get four tires. If you don't rotate the tires only your front will wear first and you may not have to change the rear tires, unless you do excessive burnout on them. If you don't do lots of burnout you can buy two tires for the front and not have to spend money for four tires.

Should we start a contest to see who has to replace their tires at the lowest miles?

It doesn't count if you changed to upgrade!

A can of WD-40 to the winner!

I think we have to bet on others. We have to much influence over the life of our own tires!

I need to think about my vote veeeerrry carefully!

You lose! I told the kid when I showed him the ripped up tires, he'll never sit behind the wheel of the Bullitt again until he pays for a new set if he does it again.

He's been very good since. :wink:

Do you guys always get your tires balanced when you rotate them?

They really don't need to be rebalanced unless you lose a wheel weight.
