This is not Tesla specific - but here's the question: Why rotate every 6,000 miles? For the sake of argument, say the tires are expected to last 24,000 miles (With 19" I hope that figure might be low). If you rotate every 6,000 miles, that's 3 rotations followed by replacement. What if you simply rotated once, at 12,000 miles? You would save 2 rotations, and the tires would get the same time on front and rear. Is one possible answer that if you don't really know how long the tires will last, you can't forecast replacement time that accurately?
As a follow up - what have the higher mileage drivers been getting on a 60 with 19" tires driven reasonably?
