Chris, thanks for the reply and the suggestion. The dealer does think it's from the rear being lighter than the front. I would have hoped the rotation would have taken care of this but appaently due to the mileage, the cupping has now become evident.
I'll be getting new tires soon and will see what the tire dealer recommends. I'll let him know your suggestion about reducing the pressure. Since I do about 75% highway driving at speeds from 70 to 80, I don't know what effect reduced pressure will have on the handling and the tirewear.
do you have any suggestions on a tire that may be better at handling this condition. On my previous cars (not minivans), I used Michelin 80K tires and was relatively satisfied. A little harder ride than the 60K tires but I could live with it.
Thanks again, Mike
