My car has steel rims and all 5 tyres are of same spec (I mean, the spare tyre is NOT a thin, 80kmph one). When the odo was at 5000km, I decided to get wheel balancing, wheel rotation and alignment done. I went to 'Tire Club' Trivandrum, Kerala.
When I said I wanted them to do 5 tyre rotation they said "keep the spare tyre as such and do a 4 tyre rotation so that when the tyres are to be replaced, you will have to replace only 3 as you will have the spare tyre unused and still new."
But I insisted and got the 5 tyres rotated. I thought 5 tyre rotation will be better in the long run. I would like your opinions/suggestions on this matter.
- - A word about 'Tyre Club', stay away from them. Unprofessional and amateurish staff. The one who was doing balancing didn't even know how to operate the machine properly.
