If you pay attention to your tires, including keeping them up to pressure, 10,000 miles probably isn't much of a stretch.

alignments should be check 2x a year as well.

free every 5000 miles. Seems a little excessive but its
their suggestion and it is free. Of course they also
suggest rebalancing at every rotation and "of course"
they charge for the balancing. I suppose if I don't
let them rotate and rebalance, then if I complain about
tire life they will blame it on my maintenance, or lack

I am in your camp,moreover, my tires usually outlast their expiration date. That is, the tread is still thick, though the rubber itself is old.
i do it once a year.

I had one set of Michelins actually last me the 80,000 miles they said they would. For $100 a tire they were certainly worth it even though the sticker shock was . I had cords showing at the very end - and I am positive tire rotations were key to getting so far.

I change my own oil with tire rotation
Tires wear evenly

I think thats a lil much....2x a yr alignment and balance. If the car goes straight and doesn't shake I think you're alright. No as far as rotation yea every 2 oil changes espeacialy with awd
Shaking is NOT from alignment..its a big misconception. 2x a year to get the the manufactirer milage warrenty. Tires are expensive and most places will check it for free...why not have it checked. I dont know about you, but if I have a 60k tread life warrenty I want all 60K.
