Archived from groups: alt>autos>toyota (more info?)

Tire rotation refers to the regular practice of switching the tires...

Purpose: Tire rotation helps to equalize tread wear and is critical to
gain.

TIRES USUALLY LAST 2.5 YRS, NOT 4-YRS.

TIRE COMPANIES WANT TO MAKE THING APPEARS LONGER, YOU ASKED YOU TO
ROTATE. YOU LOSE TRACTIONS. MY ADVICE IS TO KEEP THE DRIVING WHEEL WITH
MORE THREADS, THAT SHOULD BE YOUR CRITICAL CONCERN. ACCIDENT HAPPENS IN
WINTER/RAINING SEASON DUE TO INSUFFICIENT THREAD, NO TRACTION = FLIPPING
OVER HILL.....Heehee.........

I am worried about you Jack. You rotate tires for two reasons. 1.
Slightly out of line frontends will wear edges of tires, not to mention the
turning you do that wears them faster. 2. YOU WANT YOUR BEST TIRES ON THE
STEARING AXLE!!!! More wrecks are caused by the loss of stearing control
than skidding.

"Threads" (sic) and "stearing" (sic). Where will this ever end?

Yeah - those . - telling me how to make my tires last longer.
You aren't serious!?

Rotating does in fact extend the usable life of the tires by evening out
and distributing minor treadwear irregularities (won't much make up for
bad alignment or abusive driving). It does not harm anything -
handling, traction, whatever. Causes accidents? You're nuts.

I'm not a mechanic. You make assumptions, and you are wrong about what
you think you know from experience.

It has yet to be shown whether tire rotation causes -.
Correlation is not causation.

Why do you say that. I'm not the OP. I'm the one making the case for
rotating tires.

Again - what is your basis for that? And what is 'pkb' (I assume it's
negative)?

Try explaining that to the arch-liar Al Gore.

Look up Loehle 2007 btw ! There's a decent article here ....
http://www.worldclimatereport.com/index.php/2008/02/11/a-2000-year-glo...-temper

Interestingly Loehle used 18 data sets, not the ONE (bristlecone pine
tree rings) used by Mann.

It seems that our climate today is bang on the median line for the last
2000 yrs.

That was not written by Gary L. Burnore. It was written by me.

What are you talking about?
