That is the rotation that I use. Others on WF may use a different one. There are several threads on this forum that cover this very topic.

You dont want to rotate your spare, sometimes like bfg for example can only be rotated front to back then back to front and if you break down on the trail and you poped the right tire and your spare was thrown in on the left side, your screwed and on a daily driver.

It's very simple. rears move to front. Driver front to spare and passenger front to driver rear and spare to pass rear

Thats unidirectional tires.. and is all cases. Most of the time when a car is equipped with a unidirectional tire, they wont have a spare because it only benefits the one side of the vehicle, or they will have the useless donut that is not unidirectional.

I think I was dyslexic when I rotated mine first... ended up with the spare going to the drivers rear instead of the passengers rear, so I gotta keep that in mind each time I do it. Must have been drunk or something that day lol.

Correct. Mtrs are asymmetrical, but not directional.

I'm getting ready to put MT-R's on the Jeep and I plan to use the same pattern that was in your link Chris. It's the same pattern I've used on the stock BFG's and they've done great.
