Do people do this anymore on the MH? and do you swop the spare?
I have changed mine at times but have a brand new Michelin tyre underneath that has been unused for 3 years and is now not compatible with new Agilis-which is recommended to be fitted in pairs or the whole set Crying or Very sad

I think it is a good idea to rotate the wheels maybee every 10, 000 miles, however it has been said that it is not necessary to do this.
I think that it is very important to keep an eye on balancing from time to time really to save the tread, but then as you know pete its sods law when you get a bloody screw in the tyre and then as Bob says "your screwed"
The spare tyre surely is used for emergency so it shouldn't matter if its an old style tyre as long as its legal!
Possibility a useful link:

Hi, Here is a link that perhaps may help, its directed at putting new tyres on the rear axle, but I suppose there is a commonality in rotating tyre's , as I assume the reason for rotating would be to put the more worn tyres on the rear and the less worn on the front.

Hope that makes sense

VBH said the new tyres go on the rear irrespective of the drive axle. ??
