25,000 MILES WITH NO ROTATION IS NOT UNREASONABLE LIFE FROM A SET PERFORMANCE TIRES. WHAT ABOUT THE ALIGNMENT, SOMETIMES A CAUSE OF IRREGULAR TIRE WEAR AND THEN TIRE NOISE! I HAVE RUN TWO SETS OF DUNLOP SP4000 - 16'' AND WITH ROTATION GOT 40,000+ MILES OF QUIET, TROUBLE FREE SERVICE. IF YOU HAVE A NON ROTATABLE TIRE SET UP YOU CAN'T EXPECT MUCH MORE THAN YOU GOT. ADVICE - IF YOU RUN A NON-DIRECTIONAL TIRE, LIKE THE DUNLOP SP4000 CROSS ROTATE THE FRONT TIRES WITH EACHOTHER LEFT TO RIGHT & RIGHT TO LEFT, THIS WILL HELP SOME. BUT IF YOU CHOOSE DIRECTIONAL TIRES, COMMON IN HIGHER PERFORMANCE TIRES YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO DO THIS.

PLEASE REMEMBER ONE THING. SOMETIMES THE TIRE WILL SHOW THE RESULTS OF OTHER PROBLEMS A VEHICLE MAY HAVE OR CAUSE, BUT THE TIRE DIDN'T CAUSE THE SITUATION, THEY ARE THE VICTIM'S!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
