Re: Infinity G35 Tires
You cannot rotate front to rear because you have 17in 225 50's on the front and 235's on the rear. The rear tires (and wheels) are slightly wider than those on the front. You can get all the same size...225's if you replace the rear wheels. When you see the price of those wheels, you'll probably continue to purchase tires. You could get a tire with better treadwear..(harder compound), however you will sacrifice ride and handling and probably noise. I would not recommend side to side rotation because unless the tires are remounted and rebalanced, you will change direction..not recommended on radials.

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.
Did you ever see the statements in the tire dealer shops stating a specific tire model will last approx. 50-75,000 miles/
This will never happen unless you have your tires rotated every 7500 miles, the front tires wear excessively compared to the rear tires in 90% of the cars/trucks.
Why? Because the front tires in most cases are the drive tires(front wheel drive) causing the front tires to ocasionally spin causing excessive wear and also the front tires are the ones that guide your vehicle down the road, when you turn the steering wheel you are turning the front tires to make the car go in the direction you want thus causing more excessive wear to the front tires, in order to get even wear from front to back tires one must move the front tires to the back tires at 7500 mile intervals, making sure the tires only get rotated to the same side of the car each and every time, if you move a right rear tire to a left front position, severe damage may occur so please keep them same side rotations.
Also have your wheel alignment checked at a tire shop each time you bring it in for a wheel/tire rotation as pot holes, hitting curbs,etc all can effect the way the tires wear if the alignment goes out.
I am thinking that the noise is from a failed wheel bearing or possible cv joint failure
find yourself another service dealer as tire noise is either there or not there and rotation (if it is a faulty tyie ) would move to the new position
Here is a clue to consider
rotating tires is a ploy by the tire dealers to sell tires
have a wheel alignment done on the rear first and then the front and leave the tires alone
if it is a front wheel drive vehicle you will get 3 times the mileage out of the rear tires compared to the front drive tires and that is a big saving for you
next point -- radial tires continue to wear in the same pattern regardless of where they are put so how are you to know it it is a faulty tire construction or a need for a wheel alignment
third point --- many brands of tires are made as directional tires ( a directional arrow on the side wall) and cannot be rotated because they cannot be fitted on a wheel that rotates against the arrow
if they are the wear in pattern of the belts in the rubber is altered and may lead to tire failure ---the tread pattern is designed to remove maximum water and produce maximum grip in the direction of the arrow
Your tire sensors are sensing different size tires./ Your tires are rotating at different speeds because of the size difference. put the same tires on the front axle if front wheel drive. and the same tires on the rear if rear wheel drive. be sure to match tire pressure.
It really depends on the tires. Some tires have a one-way tread pattern and are only supposed to rotate in one direction (i.e. ones that pull water away from the center of the tire). In this case, you must rotate driver-rear to driver-front and passenger-rear to passenger-front. If you have a symmetrical tread pattern, you should rotate driver-rear to passenger-front and passenger-rear to driver front.
If you post a picture of the tread pattern, I can tell you which you should do.
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)
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
