Tire Rotation

Greetings all,

I have seemed to misplace my manual and I am not too sure if it even states that answer to my question, but was hoping if any of you could advise me on how often my tires should be rotated. I have the Michelin PS2 sport tires and have just hit over 5000 miles. Since the tires are directional, all I can do is rotate the rear with the front correct? Thanks!

Your car is going to look pretty funny with 265s in front and 245s in the rear. You can't rotate tires meaningfully on this car unless you change to same size tires front and rear.

Foget about the tires, what about the wheels? This is a staggered setup and the wheel offsets are different. (As you and most here know). I have considered getting a set of rear wheels and tires and putting them upfront for a more aggressive look/offset and with a square setup like that, I actually could rotate my wheels/tires.

True, they have an inside and outside, but no directionality. Most manufacturers have ended this beause it means producing and stocking different tires for each side of the car, and perhaps each corner.
