These tires should be rotated every 5,000 to 8,000 miles (8 000 to 13 000 km). See
Scheduled Maintenance on page 10-2."

It shows side to side and front to back so I would think cris-crossing them is ok. If people say it cups them, then I'll just do back to front
My OnStar report just mentioned a tire rotation. I'm at 5,400 miles now...

I have over 11,000 miles with the stock tires, never even had the car aligned until I lowered it. My tires are perfect. No uneven wear, still got a few thousand miles left on them as well. I also drive the car pretty hard most of the time, and enjoy taking turns at a nice speed So the factory tires and alignment settings are perfect, if you don't do anything to screw that up your tires will last a while without the need to ever rotate them (since you can't really rotate them anyway).

If you rotate the pzeros with the tire pressure monitor system side to side it will read incorrectly on the display.

If you rotate them ANYWAY they will read incorrectly. 5 minute (or less) procedure to fix that - already done it when I put the new front wheels on

aren't the 21" wheels on the v6 all the same size?
