It’s suggested that your tire rotation follow the patterns shown below.
You should rotate tires front-to-back only if the tires are all the same size (patterns A-D).
Some vehicles are equipped with different sized tires and wheels on the front versus the rear axle. In that case, pattern E is suggested (if non-directional tires are mounted).
When rotating tires with a directional tread pattern, always observe the arrows molded on the sidewall. These arrows indicate the turning direction of the tire which must be carefully respected. In case of same size directional tires, pattern A could be followed.
Vehicles that use different sized directional tires or wheels with different front and rear offsets with directional tires will require dismounting, mounting and rebalancing in order to correctly rotate tires - Always check your vehicle owner’s manual for any recommendations by your vehicle manufacturer.
