X2 Since I bought 5 Tires, and plan to get 255/85 BFG M/Ts for my next ones I dont want my nittos as a spare, so I throuw my spare into the rotation as well, wear all 5 tires down together. This is my very crude drawing from paint that shows how I rotate them.XKNUT said:BFGoodrich recommends:
Back to Front. Front crossed to back.
IMHO I feel crossing the tires will give the best overall wear over the lifetime of your tires, though I have no emperical evidence otherwise.
Since I bought my tires at BigO and have my oil changes done there, I get my tires rotated every 3,000 miles. It's included in the cost of the oil change. Only drawback is that I might not notice any odd wear patterns within 3k.Rotation: The changing of tires from front to rear or from side-to-side on a vehicle according to a set pattern; provides even treadwear. Rotating your tires on a regular basis (every 6,000-8,000 miles) is a simple way to add miles to their life.
Do you have any data to back that up? If so, which I highly doubt, a class action lawsuit will follow. In the long run this will result in an incorrect mileage reading, which is HIGHLY illegal.robnfl said:Muzikman said:If only going up the 1", you do not need gears.

I agree...going from 32" to 33" isn't that big of a change. For example the OR MT with 3.538 final drive ratio would only have to go to a 3.66 final ratio to match rpm's when going from 265/75-16 to 285/75-16. Actually, the OR models already have a 1" larger than stock tire and Nissan didn't change the final ratio of the OR...that's why our speedo/odo's are off by about 3%.
