Tire rotation...

About to rotate the tires on the Highlander...some Tire rotation IQ.

Four (4) Tire Rotation

What tire rotation pattern should be followed? The Tire & Rim Association has identified three traditional rotation patterns covering most vehicles (equipped with non-directional tires and wheels which are the same size and offset).
  • On front-wheel drive cars, rotate the tires in a forward cross pattern (Figure A) or the alternative X pattern (Figure B)
  • On rear-wheel or four-wheel drive vehicles, rotate the tires in a rearward cross pattern (Figure C) or the alternative X pattern (Figure B)


Today’s performance tire and wheel trends have provided the need for two additional tire rotation patterns.
  • The "Front-to-Rear" (Figure D) pattern may be used for vehicles equipped with the same size directional wheels and/or directional tires.
  • A "Side-to-Side" (Figure E) pattern may be used for vehicles equipped with different sized non-directional tires and wheels on the front axle compared to the rear axle.


If the last two rotation patterns do not provide even wear, dismounting, mounting and rebalancing will be necessary to rotate the tires. Vehicles that use different sized directional wheels and tires, and/or wheels with different front and rear offsets with directional tires will require dismounting, mounting and rebalancing to rotate tires.

Five (5) Tire Rotation

While many vehicles are equipped with temporary spares that cannot be included in a tire rotation program, if the vehicle’s four wheels and tires on the ground match the spare wheel and tire (if non-directional and not branded "for temporary use"), they should be included in the tire rotation pattern. Follow the vehicle manufacturer’s recommended tire rotation procedures, or if not available, insert the spare in the right rear position at every rotation. Place the tire that would have gone to the right rear in the trunk as the spare until the next tire rotation.
  • On front-wheel drive cars with full-size matching spare, rotate the tires in a forward cross pattern (Figure F)
  • On rear-wheel or four-wheel drive cars with full-size matching spare, rotate the tires in a rearward cross pattern (Figure G)


Five tire rotation results in equally distributed use that will help maintain equivalent tread depths on all five tires throughout their life. When applied to many four-wheel drive and all-wheel drive vehicles, this is required to prevent driveline damage if a flat tire forces a new spare to be put into service with partially worn tires on the other three wheel positions.

For simplicity and because it doesn't require alot of thinking, I always prefer the 'D' method, Front-to-Rear.



With that said, I don't remember the last time I rotated the tires on the Taco.

Think you should worry about flat spots more?

Thanks for the heads up George! I may be ready to hit you up in a couple years, we still have C-17's that need my expertise!

I know, just though you might find it interesting!

Look at this terminator hanging tough with a ZR1...

I did find the position cool! I use the 'boring-scope' here at work once in a while, no NDT though (different union classification). Most of my experience is with CMM.

I was rooting for the Termi!

I recognize that track! I like how that Porsche spun out! Haha! I wonder how the ROUSH would hold up to a ZR1.

What do you guys think of this.....
Ford Racing 4.6L 3Valve Intake Manifold

I think my set up would benefit from this intake, so would Leo and Bill. But will the shaker fit??

I think that ZR1 driver was taking it easy he should of had way more separation in the twisties on that Termi IMO.

Looks cool, but that's 5 bills plus retuning; all for maybe 40hp on the top end.

For you, if it doesn't require a tune, it may be a good mod. If a tune is required, not too sure you want to go down that road. I mean all the tuners couldn't even give you a decent CAI tune.

As for the CDC Shaker, you'd have to customize a rear mounting point (it mounts to one of the plastic lip on the runner). Next issue may be the height... guess that will be your issue too.
