When to rotate tires?

Anyone know what the interval is? I looked in all the manuals and online and found nothing definitive.

I found that Gassers should do it at 7500 miles. I used to do my old truck at 5K which was every oil changed. I planned on rotating my tires at every oil change but this truck could go 10K miles before needing a change.

Any help would be great. I am not looking for "I do mine at X amount". I am just looking for what Ford states in it's manuals, etc.

Its 7500. The same as the gassers. When the diesel supplement does specify a different interval, or one at all, you refer to the main manual which is the same as the gasser. Hope this helps.

Use 7500 as the maximum interval. No harm in doing it more often then that.

If you take it to the dealer to get it done make sure its a good one that knows wtf they are doing. Saw some kid rotate mine at my first service interval and just zapped them back on with the impact gun. Didn't ever check for proper torque nor take the courtesy to balance them. Forbid I get a flat, doubt I'll be able to break the nuts free.
