Growing up my dad taught me when rotating tires bring the back tires straight forward and criss cross the front tires to the back. My pontiac owners manual shows front to back, back to front keeping the tires on the same side of the car. My wifes mini cooper doesnt have a recommendation because their only recommendation is to bring it into the dealer and pay $70!!!!!!! for a tire rotation.

Personally, I don't like to relocate tires until there are signs of wear. Maybe it's just me, but it always seems like they never feel as good as where they started out.

Of course, everything I have is RWD, so front and rear have equally important wear-causing tasks.

+1

20K on the truck and no rotation
30k on the car and no rotation.

All are wearing evenly.

I have a theory- Its all about cornering.......I am most likely the slowest corner'er you'll ever come across!

Jack up left side of car until both tires are off the ground. Remove car from gear. Rotate front and rear tires one full revolution. Repeat for right side of vehicle. Lower vehicle. Test drive for proper rotation.
