Agree about the user manual!! Very hard to read.But, the manual says nothing (that I could find and, the **** thing is written with so many side notes and warnings that it seems to abandon all pretensions to coherency) about how/when to rotate the tires. TIRE ROTATION and ROTATION are not in the index. And, I could find no reference in the manual in the sections about tires/testing pressure/replacing/etc ... about rotation.
So - does anybody know?
Just curious - has anybody had to replace their tires, yet? How many miles should we expect from a set? EV's are notoriously heavy and accelerate quickly - both tend to be hard on tire wear.Just by feel of the wear bars on my tires, they're wearing fairly evenly after 13.6K miles.
I would hazard a guess that I-Paces with the 22” summer P0 tires will wear a lot faster than the I-Paces with 20” & 18” all season tires. A good estimate can be obtained by looking at the tread wear rating of your tire. Also, the more aggressive you drive (donuts, McRat AutoXing, etc.), the faster you will burn your treadsJust curious - has anybody had to replace their tires, yet?

P.S. I'm at 17.5K miles, and there's still 1 or 2/16th's of an inch above the wear bars.
I worked for Bridgestone/Firestone as a mechanic for a number of years and we would recommend rotation every 3k - 5k miles, basically same time you did an oil change. For me personally I rotate every 5k. Follow rear wheel cross pattern for awd. Front wheels to back, LR to RF, RR to LF.
I also use a tire depth gauge to keep track of tread depth. If I notice some uneven wear, I rotate.
