4 tire rotaion

I am doing a 4 tire rotation, I have MT MTZ's. Do I go front to back or should I do the X left back to right front, ect.

According to the owners manual you bring the back ones forward to the same side front and you move the front ones back and to the opposite sides.
So your left front goes to the back right and the right front goes back left

You didn't ask, but I'll try anyway: You really should do a five tire rotation as discussed here. You're welcome to do four tire of course, but I'll let others handle that.

Well if he is like me and only has 4 of the same tires and a stock spare, a 5 tire rotation won't work.

Well yes, that's true. Of course, if you'd done five tire rotation to begin with, you'd have gotten more life out of your tires in the first instance and replaced all five at once such that they'd all match.

Because it never occurs to a lot of people with brand new Jeeps, I just wanted to throw it out there in the event the OP has five new tires and just hadn't thought of it.

Front-to-back, same side.

I jumped into 4 new 33s and so I never had the option to do the 5tire rotation. But like you said, it does make the tires last longer and that's why my next set of tires is going to be smaller and possibly back to stock tires.

FWIW, I just had my tires (all 5) rotated at 5500 miles, the oil change place that does it includes a free rotate with every oil change, but they charged me an extra $5 to do all 5? I was ever so slightly miffed, but paid the fiver and was happy it was done....

The reason I went with 4 and not 5 was all about the funds, with the 5th tire I would have also bought a new tire carrier, which in turn mean that I would have had to buy a new bumper.
