SOURCE: What is the proper sequence for rotating tires?

My understanding is that with radial tires that are in use today, you should rotate front to back on same side. Not side to side.

I was told by a Chevy dealership that you don't rotate 1993 corvette. Is this true?


Most people don't since there are two issues that make it difficult.
First, the tires on the front are a different size than the ones on the rear. Thus you cannot do the standard front-to-rear rotation.

Second, the tires have a directional tread pattern. This means that to rotate the tires from one side to the other they must be dismounted, turned, remounted and re-balanced.

Rotation is good to prevent excessive edge wear than can occur, but the time and cost for rotation on this car can be something to make you think twice about.

Tip

Saving Your Tires


The largest vehicle expense short of a catastrophic mechanical failure can be the purchase of tires. After spending anywhere from a few hundred dollars to upwards in the thousands for tires why not protect your investment? Many tire stores offer packages for road hazard situations which usually covers tire repairs and lifetime rotate and balance as well as proration of the tire if tire becomes unrepairable.Ask your tire dealer what their road hazard packages cover? Some tire dealers even offer lifetime alignment or extended alignment service packages.

One of the most common cause for tire failure is improper inflation.Underinflated tires can cause excessive flexing of the sidewall causing the rolling resistance to increase (friction) and can not dissipate heat the way it was intended.This can lead to blow outs or tread separations.Overinflated tires can wear out the center tread and allow to much pressure to build up and cause a tire to blow out. Most vehicles have a placard in a door jam or glove
box that states what manufacturer suggests what the air pressure should be set to.If unable to locate the placard the owners manual contains the same information.This is what the air pressure should be set to.Tires have a maximum pressure printed on the sidewall this is more to advise what the tire can handle not a guideline for inflation.

A long term sign of an under inflated tire is inner and outer edge wear this causes the tire to not roll evenly across the road surface and puts the vehicles weight on the edges of the tire. An overinflated tire will
cause the the center tread of the tire to wear out.

You purchased a tire rated for 60000 miles and it only lasted for 30000? The reason for this is usually due to lack of tire rotation so the drive tires end up wearing out faster then the non drive tires. Proper tire
maintenance is the key to longevity of your tires.Most importantly proper tire pressure.Most manufacturers recommend tire rotations between 5000-7500 following this will maximize the life of your tires.Tire rotation
procedure can vary from a front wheel drive (FWD), rear wheel drive (RWD),all wheel drive (AWD), or four drive (4WD) your owners manual should tell you the best way to have your tire rotated for your vehicle. At one time it was suggested to never cross rotate tires due to damage occurring this is no longer the case. Advancements in tire technology has changed this so cross rotating is now a regular practice. There are some exceptions such as performance rated directional tires designed to only be mounted one way on the vehicle left or right side these can
only be rotated front to back.Some vehicle are now stock with different size front and rear tires so rotating
really is not an option.

After your tire replacement or rotation an alignment is a large a key to tire longevity and avoiding premature tire wear. In a perfect world there are no pot holes in the roads or curbs to hit but we all know that is not reality.These things can easily cause one of the alignment angles to go out of specification drastically reducing tire life. I mentioned earlier that some shops offer a lifetime or an extended alignment service plan this
is definitely a great option depending on what your intentions with the vehicle are.This can save you you a lot of money in the long run.About once a year or every 12000 miles you should have the alignment checked and set if needed even sooner if you commonly are hitting potholes and curbs.

Following these simple rules will allow you to get the maximum mileage from your tires.

Tire rotation


if you rotate your tires when you change your oil your tires will last you a lot longer then ie you dont rotate them so a good rule of thumb is to rotate them every time you change your oil.

Numbers for tire rotation sequence


The rotation can only be from back to front on same side of car only. They found crisscrossing is bad because of the way the tread patterns wear.

Between 115kms and 120 kms per hour Has had a dealer alignment all balance on tires rotated AND PRESSURE CHECKED


Well, you do not say WHAT is happening at that speed, so I guess vibration. Check tires for ply splitting, raise vehicle, place on jackstands, and rotate tire while sighting across the tread. Rotate the tire and look for a section that is not true.

I can't get the spare tire out of the rack? 2004 yukon


  • Rotate the hoist shaft counterclockwise in order to lower the spare tire to the ground. Continue to rotate the shaft until the spare tire can be pulled out from under the vehicle and removed. If the spare tire does not lower to the ground, the secondary latch is engaged causing the tire not to lower.
  • If the secondary latch is engaged and the cable end is visible, perform the following procedure: 3.1. Tighten the cable by rotating the hoist shaft clockwise until you hear 2 clicks or feel it skip twice. You cannot overtighten the cable. 3.2. Loosen the cable by rotating the hoist shaft counterclockwise 3 or 4 turns. 3.3. If the spare tire can be lowered, repeat steps 1 and 2 to see if the spare tire can be removed. 3.4. If the spare tire cannot be lowered, rotate the hoist shaft counterclockwise until approximately 15 cm (6 in) of cable is exposed. 3.5. Raise and support the vehicle. 3.6. Place a transmission jack, or equivalent, under the spare tire. 3.7. Position the center of the transmission jack under the secondary latch release button at the center of the spare tire. Arrange the arms of the transmission jack so they will support the tire after it has been released. 3.8. Raise the jack until the spare tire stops moving upward and is firmly held in place, releasing the secondary latch. 3.9. Lower the tire. If the spare tire is hanging by the cable, rotate the hoist shaft counterclockwise until the tire is low enough to remove.

    Im am rotating tires on a 94 jeep cherokee the


    Move the passenger side rear tire to the front, and passenger side front to driver side rear. Switch the driver side rear tire to the front and driver side front to passenger side rear. Repeat this "X" pattern each time you rotate the tires. Rotate the tires from side to side if the tires are different sizes on the front and rear.

    This is the better solution. Hope helped (remember rated this help)

    For more details about Jeep Cherokee, review the Service Manual.

    Good luck.

    Service tire system, what does that mean???


    Well, it might simply mean they wish to rotate your tires. When you are told your tires need to be rotated, it means your tires are warn on certain parts. You can get quite a few more miles out of the tires if you simply rotate, or move the front right to another place on the car, and change the rest of the tires positions as well.

    They might also want to just check to see how warn they are in general, but their likely going to rotate, and align your tires.

    Tire rotation warning


    It has nothing to do with rotating your tires, on your LCD screen when you select maintenance, you can select at how many miles you want to be reminded when to change your oil and when to rotate your tires. Once your vehicle has reached so many miles it'll pop up to remind you as it's sposed to do. While at a stopped position go to that screen, scroll down with your little joystick type knob and when you've selected tire rotation, you click to reset the miles on it back to zero. When you do your oil change you do the same thing. Your screen doesn't know if you've changed your tires or not, only you can tell it that you have.

    At 1500 miles the front end was in need of alignment and the outside edge of the front tires were wearing down excessively.We took to the dealer and they aligned it When I went to rotate the tires at 5500...


    once a were pattern is worn in tire s unless you rotate tires to the rear they will keep wearing you should rotate your tires every oil change especially if you do alot of around town driving i am willing to bet you that good year lied to you about the alignment i am sure the dealer put it into spec the first time you just need to rotate them a little more often
