Tire Rotation

I have MT Baja MTL size LT315/17 70R17 that I guess you would call badly feathered. My question is do I rotate straight front to back or should I criss cross them?

doesn't matter, the "experts" change their mind all the time. we always got straight front to back now, they say the tire shouldn't be turning in opposite directions for some stupid reason.

and if your tires are feathered they will not fix themselves, you need to rotate your tires frequently, every other oil change or 6k is best.

It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president."

I agree with the previous poster.
I might suggest checking the alignment and/or shocks.
Do a rotation and have it aligned.
If the prob continues then check the shocks.

Check for loose parts, check your tie rods twice.
Get an alignment.
As Dave said, rotating tires won't fix the tires. If they're badly torn up, replace them.
Don't forget to rotate in your spare Mark W.
