Probably true about that 265/35 vs. 225/45. I was actually running a 235/40 front before the switch to square and the difference was enough that I stopped scraping my bumper in certain scenario's...

Yes, I rotate them often now. The tires are lasting longer, I don't know if I'll get 30,000 miles out of them, but I think I will get more than 15,000 which is all I got last time.
