So you looking at 1 hour of your time plus $ to pay to tire shop, plus risk of them scratching your rims, or screwing up something else. - Let's say the hassle is worth 100$ including your time. You may be can get 30% more life out of 500$ set. 30% of 500$=150$. There is some sense, but not much.finntexan said:But: How about when you have half of the treadwear left, you'll go to tire shop and ask them to remove the tires off the wheels, then switch right to left and vice versa, that way you would get the outer sides to the inside, without changing the direction of rotation. And the wear should the equalize for the end of the tire lifetime (so AMPM, this way you could even use the rest of the rubber in your tires ;-) ) ?
