    Dear Lawnsite,

    What's up? I was wondering if I should rotate my tires on my Turf Tracer. I'm talking about the rear ones. I don't think it would matter, but I just put a some brand new ones on that baby and want them to last more than 2 years this time.

    Sincerly,

    Ted

    I doubt it would help to rotate. The tires that lasted only 2 years, were they Carlisle??

    They were just whatever came with the mower. It was my fault though cause I would let them get too low.

    The reason I asked about Carlisle tires. I only got 2 years out of them on a hydro walk behind. Got a great deal on some Cheng Shin tires on ebay and they lasted 4 years. My new mower has Carlisle, so hopefully they last a little longer this time.

    Are you turning on concrete?

    Nothing wears out tires faster than concrete.
