my car clocked 30K km already,still havent rotate the stock tyres once...
.should I do it? or

1. pakai sampai botak then change 2 new tyres?

2. rotate it and use the front tyres untill botak , then change to 4 new tyres?


i scare if i dun rotate my front tyres will have less grip in rain.

should rotate every 10k kms according to the manual. then the wear will be even and once all botak can change all 4 at the same time

but now for your case, i think 50% is still alot of thread so you can still rotate them front to back, use another 30k kms then start rotating every 10k kms

swap it since u hv so much thread...normal car is front wheel drive... means need more thread in front, so u wont experience less grip in rain.(unless u do fast cornering i mean real fast like racing)

i doubt u got 50% in front and 99% at back since already 30K KM it's more probably 40% front and 80% back

since u got hugh diffrent between front and back tyre... use till both front and back about the same then swap again(i think tat time u already change new tyre no ned swap liao) dun use till 20% baru change tyre...30% can change tyre liao. ur life is much more valuable then da tyre.

i plan to change 2 tyres at 1 time
maybe i should rotate it now and use the 99% down to 20 or 30% then change 2 new tyres ..that would be anoher 40-50k km to go.

Make sure you rotate both and not one by one because it will lose grip but most important is to check the Tyre thread before rotating.. If not you rotate the back to the front but the grip is not there so becareful about it yeah

if like this... u'll always change 2 tyre oni... it's batter to change all tyre at once...1st grip is balance, 2nd tyre also got expired date la bang...

best choice is swap 1st then change 4 tyre... then swap tyre every 10 K.

if you don't whack corner during intermediate rain condition, then, you need to rotate the tire.
for a fwd car, front may need the thicker tread tire for grip and traction.
depending on the tread pattern, standard should be in X rotation mode. or else, direct rotation -> mode for a directional tread pattern.

Many years ago:

My car is front wheel drive.
The tyres are rotated every 10km at the service centre when I go in for servicing.
Have to pay RM10 each time.
So, they are evenly worn.
So much so that I ended up with 4 nearly botak tyres.

Had the whole family in the car.
Was driving 80-100km/h on the karak highway when it suddenly rained heavily.
It is dangerous and the car aquaplanned several times.
I have to admit I am quite shaken, I nearly hit the divider.
Ended up driving at a turtle speed between 40-60km/h from Karak to KL.

From then on I drive until the front is about 80-85% worn and change tyres.
New goes to the back and the back goes to the front.
The back wear more slowly, it will usually have 50% thread left.
This way I can ensure I will never has 4 nearly botak tyres at sometime or another.

Regardless of what everybody says.
I will never rotate my tyres again.
It is dangerous as well as a waste of time and money!

i think its OK to rotate once or twice in the full lifespan on the tyres, use the tyres down to 30% or 20 % enough la, dont let it go botak onli change.

btw I think we should change the tryes when it reach 3 years.

You can either rotate or change pair by pair, meaning use until the front one cannot use then change new pair.
