Question:

Tire Rotation?

Tire Rotation?

Answer:

radial tires, (which are what you have unless you have some older or retro style tires), are rotated by moving the fronts straight back to the rear and the rears straight ahead to the fronts. the tires should have the same direction of rotation, if you switch them in the older fashion which was rf to lr etc., the tires will run the oppisite direction at high speed and this can cause the cords to break. i never put a lot of stock into tire rotation, if the tires run unevenly enough that they need to be rotated to improve wear, you have a suspension problem tht you are avoiding. if the wear on the tires is even, why rotate? very few people do this anymore.
They used to criss cross the tires, but now they just switch the front and back tires (the tires stay on the same side of the car).
the front 2 cross over to the back and the back 2 switch to the same side just the front.
Tire rotation is moving of the tires of a vehicle or automobile from one position to another to ensure tire wear. It is an important factor to be considered to extend the useful life expectancy of a set of tires. Tire rotation is very easy auto maintenance tasks to perform, though it is equally important.
they switch the 2 fronts together and the 2 rears together...although i dont see why they dont do it the other way...good luck!
