Hello all,
Can anyone please tell how often are you required to rotate your tires on a 2004 325XI? I have 12500. miles on it. Are you suppost to rotate them? I looked all over my vehicle's manual and I can't find anything regarding this issue.
Any information you guys can give me will be very much appreciated.
Thanks,
Oscar.

The manual for my 2000 328i says not to rotate the tires. I've put 20,000 miles on my tires so far, no rotations, and the belts haven't burst yet.

You know, what? you right ! I cheked manual of my Bimmer and "Bingo" , they do not recomend to rotate tires on BMW cars.Speaking honestly , I was supprised, because most car manufacturers and tires shops recomend rotation betwen 3000 and 6000 miles(5000-10000 km), so my manual of my other car 1993 Mercedes-6000 miles.So, in this case leave it alone-do not rotate !
