What is the sequence for rotating these tires. Is there a right side, and left side tire. If so, do they need to shift rims to shift to the other side of the car. I was just asking as I noticed the directional arrow on the sidewall.

you can only rotate the tires on the same side of the car with each other. hence, you can only movce the left rear tire to the left front tire, and vice versa. if you switch the tires from different sides of the car they lose their purpose and functionality.

My salesman recommended tire rotation every 2500 miles, and Oil changes every 5000. Seems like an awful lot of rotation for tires that stay on their respective sides of the car when rotated.

Really depends on how you drive. If you drive aggressively, more frequent tire rotation will definitely be a benefit.

As far as sequence, since the IS is using uni-directional tires, they HAVE to be rotated on the same side only (front to back and vice versa)
