How Do Tire Rotations Work?
For a front-wheel-drive car, the rotation is as follows: the front left tire moves to the back left, front right to back right, back left to front right, and back right to front left.
A rear-wheel-drive car is similar but not the same: the back left tire moves to the front left, back right to front right, front left to back right, and front right to back left.
For cars with tires that have directional patterns, the front left tire simply switches with the back left, and the front right switches with the back right.
For different size tires in the front than the back in width or diameter, the front two tires can be switched with each other and the back two with each other.
