don't forget that some tyres have specific rotation (i know mine do) so you can only swap from front to rear (not left to right), unless of course you go to a tyre shop & get them to take the tyres off the rims & turn them around

I don't rotate! Why....

If I have a geo defect that's screwing tyres, it takes longer to spot and you can end up screwing 4 not just 2.

The centre diff is so soft, as long as front/rear wear difference is massive, it doesn't have any effect on the diff anyway!

Spare is a 15" steel with a geo, so will only go on in an emergency!

i have a noisy centre diff and a stuffed old open rear diff to argue otherwise,
when i bought my GT is had two new tyres and two old ones on opposite corners of the car.

No idea how long they'd been unmatched, but a long time i suspect by the fact that my rear diff had the hard facing worn off the sun-gears,
meaning that one side of the diff had been turning a lot more than the other, my centre diff has always had a nice whine to it aswell. no doubt caused by the mis-match aswell!!

my car was 1 owner before i got it, so the old country bumpkin who owned it obviously didn't realise what damage out of whack tyres could do. Also the dealer he had is serviced at needs their a$$ kicking for not informing him of the potential dmamge that can be done.

that's how i rotate mine.

but every 10,000km (second oil change as magus does) i have them swapped on the rims (inside to out and a balnace),
as i tend to be a little hard on the outside edges of tyres?? hmmmm can't understand why though? :D :D :D
