The guy in the driveway who maintains our two jeeps will rotate all 5. I am not going to have a convo with a dealer about it or pay a surcharge.
If you do a five tire rotation and buy the same tires as replacement when needed you can keep the best of the old tires as the spare and just buy four tires and switch to a four tire rotation.Whether it's 20% or 25% doesn't that savings disappear when you buy the five replacement tires instead of just four?
These are all of the points for why I've done 5-tire for years. I would also add that I almost always shred a tire on the rocks near the useful life of the set. Once that is replaced I move to 4-tire rotation and only buy 4 tires on the next go around moving back to a 5-tire.I prefer a five tire rotation for several reasons:
1) I paid a lot of money for the spare to not use it
2) it allows me to get my next set of tires all matching w/o an odd or unused spare
3) The spare tire is 'aging out' whether I use it or not
4) The tire diameter difference when an unused full tread spare is put on with worn tires can create up to 1-2% diameter diameter difference, which adds loads on the differential, particularly if locked up
5) It extends the life of my set of tires by 25%
You are correct except the TPMS sensors don't use Bluetooth communication. They have their own standard on 433 MHz.Yes it does, but the Jeep’s bluetooth does not collect a TPMS reading from the static tailgate location.
The moment you rotate the spare tire to one of the four corners, the Jeep starts collecting a TPMS reading from it.
I do 4 tire. I go through tires fast enough that the spare does not age out and so next go around I just buy 4 tires. Right or wrong - the voices in my head say it is a good thing.
No. It won't be that big of a difference. I'd go ahead and do it.Question for the audience. Is it to late to do a 5 tire rotation if the dealership didn't do it for the first rotation of all brand new tires? Or am I shit out of luck?
FYSA I will be needing an oil change and tire rotation within the next few weeks.
We try to do a 5 tire rotation every time. Had the same thing happen where we have our tires rotated and we insisted on the 5 tires and in the direction we wanted. Want to make sure we get as much life out of them as possible, all 5 of them.I took my Wrangler JLU in for it's first complimentary oil change from the dealership that I bough it from and asked for a 5 wheel tire rotation. They charge an extra $10 for the extra wheel. Not the $10 is a lot, but it's the principle of it. Anyway, they proceeded to tell me that it is rare when a customer asks for a 5 wheel rotation. And unless the customer asks for the 5 wheel rotation they only rotate the 4 on the road.
So, my question is what do you all prefer, a 5 wheel tire rotation or a 4 wheel tire rotation and why? Especially, the why.
Thank you in advance.
