if they're radial tires don't cross them. Check on the sidewall and find out if they're radial or not. If they are, there should be arrows that indicate the direction the tires should turn. Then rotate them from back to front or front to back depending on where the tire was on last season.

should post this in the wheel and tire section next time.

they are snow tires correct? If they aren't uni-directional


Two rears come up to the front, and the front cross.

are they uni-directional? If not, you're suppose to cross the tires that are moving from the front to rear.

If its a front wheel car, you do the opposite, the front goes to the back, and back comes to the front (two tires going to the front will be crossed)

In a RWD, rears come to the front, and front goes to rear (the two tires going to the rear will cross)
