I misplaced the owners manual and was wondering how to rotate my tires on my 2002 Super Duty Dually. Do I re-mount the front tires (same rotation direction) with the rear inner tires first. or the outer tires. Oh, aluminum rims. Please help thanks.
I am not sure how the manual says to rotate them but I am sure that if is a dismount and remount fiasco if you have aluminum wheels, you only have 4 of them and they are only polished on one side. I decided long ago that it wasnt worth the trouble to roatate them and simply swap my fronts side to side at every other oil change to help with cupping (4x4 here) My original rears are about 40% tread @ 81,000 miles. Fronts replaced @ 72,000. Hard to knock that kind of tread life.
Like most dually owners, I don't do a standard rotate of the tires. The inner duals are steel, so unless you want the look of steel and aluminum you can't rotate without demounting and remounting. The slight increase in tire life will never offset the cost of all that tire swapping.
