How often do you guys/gals get your wheels rotated and balanced?
More importantly balanced.
I'm not sure if its vibrating a smidge at high speeds or if its just my imagination since I haven't done it in 15k.

thoughts?

3mos/5k is the accepted interval around my area. Firestone has a great deal on lifetime balance/ rotation and lifetime alignment- they pay for themselves in about three visits and you can go as often as your car needs it to prevent uneven tire wear. In the five months/ 5k mi that I've had my B5, I've brought it in only once for rotation, balance and alignment since I put in Firestone LH-30 tires (really nice all-season tires for the price). Hope this helps :D

:oops: I haven't rotated mine in over a year. Needless to say the fronts have significantly more wear on them then the rears. I normally only balance them when I have a tire mounted.

I just do it every 5000 miles. I paid $8 extra per tire when I bought my second set of tires and lifetime balance and rotation is free.
