    Does rotating them help even the wear across all 4 tires for you?? We've had a pretty heated debate at work about "rotating" tires!

    I rotate them although I probably should more often. It helps alot, I would probably go through rear tires 2 to 1 if I didnt. Coopers are good luck I think. I killed my biggest buck the day after I bought them! lol

    I also have the cooper A/T3's. Been very impressed with them. Around home here you see a lot of them on trucks and anyone ive talked to had nothing but good to say about them.

    If you have a truck that is a 4WD (my F350 diesel is), you definitely should rotate every 5k miles. I do rotate as close to that as I can and I think I add about 10k more miles to a set of tires.

    I live in a pretty rural area and not a lot of selection of tire dealers. I have bought my last 2 sets from my local Ford dealer at really competitive prices. They also rotate them for free because I bought them there. I've been using Goodyear Wranglers and they seem to wear pretty good for me. I usually get between 75 & 80k miles out of a set.

    When I was younger I blew off the tire rotation thing and I never got more than 50K, sometimes less.
    Last half dozen sets I have rotated almost every oil change (never more than 10K) and I have got an average of 80K+.
    The air pressure recommendations shouldn't be underestimated IMO either.
    I had some uneven wear on a set running upper end of pressure range and the pros had me air down 7psi and we coaxed them back even.

    Hardstock, my FX4 is a gas 5.4 liter. It's a 6 speed manual. I had heard some concerns that the 5.4 with an automatic struggled a little in the F250. I had to order the truck in order to get the manual transmission. I've been very happy with the truck, engine and transmission. Got 182,000 miles on it.
