I will add that assuming you don't have abnormal wear, the only benefit to being able to rotate tires is to ensure they all wear out at the same time (ie: you buy tires in a set of 4). Not rotating,...

I would personally spend money on a stand alone unit such as a Garmin.

I like mine, but it's not worth the cost (either original or as an upgrade).

Depends on usage.

And I assume you mean the rears need replacing (cost of playing around). I have 15,000 or so on mine, and this will be the last summer I get from the rears for sure.
