I have a 1981 Chev Silverado stepside shortbox rear wheel drive with a 350 motor.
The rear tires are BF Goodrich P275/ 60R15 107S and the front tires are BF Goodrich P235/ 60R15 98S. Can I rotate them or should I just leave them as is and replace them all when worn.

You can rotate them as long as you keep them in matched pairs but you will change your speedometer and fuel mileage slightly.

Thanks! I will give them a try and hopefully get some more wear out of them.
