I do my tire rotations as part of my swap between summer and winter tires. My Impreza is almost exactly one year old now (thus the NYS inspection I'm about to have done). According to my records, I took off my Yokos and installed my winter wheels/tires at 7407 miles. I then put my Yokos back on in the spring when the Impreza had 13,725 miles on the odometer. So I put 6318 miles on my winter tires/wheels.

The Impreza currently has approximately 15,500 miles on the odometer. So my Yokos currently have approximately 9200 miles on them. They've been rotated once (when I installed them again in the spring, when they had the original 7407 miles on them).

For what it's worth, I inflate my tires 3 pounds high (35 front/33 rear), and drive conservatively MOST of the time (but not always; when I'm on my favorite on-ramp, I get pretty rowdy ).
