Knowing how to rotate tires (and doing so regularly) can help make your tires wear evenly and last longer. Tires can be rotated on most cars, however there are several different patterns, each of which is designed for a specific vehicle layout. Follow the instructions in your owner’s manual if it specifies a rotation pattern, otherwise use the appropriate pattern for your car’s design.
If your car uses directional tires (tires that can only be mounted on one side of your car), your only choice is to rotate the tires from back to front and front to back. If your vehicle uses different sized tires on the front and rear, your only choice is to rotate the tires from side to side. If your car uses directional tires that are different in size from front to rear unfortunately there is no way to rotate your tires.
