Good tip Grant.



Or you could do what I did... take off all five tires to run the stockers again (35's with city driving mpg SUCKED)... forget to mark the tires... then just guess by the treadwear pattern where the hell they were and where they're going to go now.:bawling:

That's great and just what I was looking for!

Does anyone know if the Toyo's can run in either direction since in this diagram you will be moving them from the passenger side to the drivers side.

Thanks again

im pretty sure if theyre directional it would say it on the tire with an arrow pointing in the right direction.

i think the toyos on my yj were directional.

As long as they aren't direction, and you do it the same way every time, not sure it matters. But Grant's rearward cross looks like a winner.
The only thing good about that is it's the industry standard so if you don't do it yourself every time any competent tire shop will do it the same way.:beer:

I keep a copy of that in my glove box and in the service manual for my other cars.

I know I am probably gonna get blasted for this but... other than tread life, is it completely wrong to not rotate the spare. I think I would want to ensure that the spare is in perfect condition if I was to need it. Also it doesn't hurt for it to look good when it is out there for the world to see.

I get the fact that rotating the 5th tire in would extend the life of the tires. Just saying....Ok I am donning flame proof flash gear:laughing:

The problem would be if 4 tires were worn down and you put on a new tire the size would be off as much as a inch. This would not hurt to get you off of the trail, but for highway driving, not good on the diff's.

No flame here, that's a reasonable question.

This^ On my original SRa's I had a large gravel spear poke through one of my tires at about half tire life. It made it useless for anything other than a temporary spare. I was glad they were all worn the same.

Also when I'm done with these tires they will be pretty much worn out. Then if I change tire brand/size I will have an unused old spare that doesn't match. That's why I do it.

Besides my spare looks just as good (or bad) as all my other tires.
