need to know which way to rotate tires. My car has a 1.6 drop w/out a camber and the inside of my front tires is getting prety bald and wanted to know if it is a good idea to rotate them before they get worse or wate untill they blow and buy new ones. thx

From the looks of the tires in your sig pic, I think the only way you will be able to rotate them is front to rear. You'll have to keep your left tires on your left side, and right tires on your right side since they're most likely directional.

If the far inside shoulder of the tire is worn, you can inflate them a little above factory specs so the bottoms will wear faster than the sides, although I wouldn't necessarily recommend this for a long period of time.

Why don't you get a camber kit? It seems like it'd be a wise investment to me.




*** If they're not directional tires, follow this rotation to help your wear pattern.

FL --> RR
FR --> RL
RL --> FL
RR --> FR

You've got the right idea but for a rear wheel drive car. for radial tires, you move the drive wheels front-back and you cross rotate the non drive wheels.
So it's
RF->RR
LF->LR
RR->LF
LR->RF

if inside is balding, get an alignment, you have a toe problem.

If by w/o a camber you mean no camber kit, you might want to get one.
