I guess since I have never owned a car that used different tires sizes, this would appear to keep one from doing a tire rotation? While my Betty Lou is a daily driver, as I view cars like my bourbon I do not buy unless I am going to drink or drive it. How do all extend the life of the tires?

Correct pressure and checking the inside wall should do it

Imagine you've got Miss Daisy in shotgun.

Never, ever think about getting a 55....

I'm currently using Michelin Pilot Sport 4's on My R171& the tyres seem to wear relatively even across the tread area, so not seen any need to swop wheels over on each axel..

Check tyre pressures every month
Check every run for nail / screws in your tyres [ may catch early before deep penetration ]
Dont kerb tyres
Check wheel Alignment if showing any wear on tyres
If car stands for long periods of time move car .
Tyre rotation seems a thing of the past now days on modern cars .
