Tire Rotation

Any specific pattern you guys use for rotating your tires? I'm starting to do a lot of work on my FJ myself to try and save $ for mods and I figure this one is easy enough to do. Thanks fellas!

Re: Tire Rotation

Depends if you want to rotate your spare into the mix. Your owners manual will answer nearly all of your questions and gives you a pretty picture with arrows on rotating your tires.

Re: Tire Rotation

Well I havent rotated in my spare to this point... in hindsight I wish I would have. My BFG AT's have been on since I drove it off the lot. I now have right at 26k miles on my rig. Is it too late to start rotating it in now? Will the tread difference from the unused spare make any difference?

Re: Tire Rotation

I rotate mine each and every day, usually at the rate of approx 60 miles an hour...
