What happens if you wait too long to rotate tires?
Most most common recommendation is to rotate the tires every 6000 miles. If you wait too long, you lose the benefits of rotating the tires regularly. Your tires can develop a permanent wear pattern that can create a rough, noisy ride and will reduce the life of your tires.
