I know there are threads out there, but I think this is different.

I know this is the pattern you *should* follow (orange lines). For some reason my RF tire shows more wear (too many LH turns? :D) than the other three.

Does anyone know (or see a problem) if I can rotate them this way (green line)? Maybe until the next time I rotate 'em, then follow the proper pattern?

Or, (since I can only upload one picture at a time) this might be a better pic.

I think basically ous your rear tires go to the front and your front tires go to the rear, you're okay. It's probably best if they switch sides but even on the conventional rotation, they don't all switch sides.

I've only done 1 five tire rotation, and I did it like the orange arrows in the first diagram.

You are doing the same basic rotation just backwards (sort of) more importantly, You need to find out whats eating your one tire and it ain't Nascar It's something that might be able to be corrected (Toe) or fixed (something else).

I thought it was basically the same rotation pattern also (but backwards).

Some D-bag hit me a few months ago. One tire was replaced because of the accident. I would guess the tire that was replaced would be as worn as the RF. The tires have probably NEVER been rotated.

When they "fixed" the Jeep was an allignment check done? IF you are eating a tire - something is wrong.

I do mine every 5k. Don't know if that's the norm or not, but I do oil, oil filter, and rotation every 5k miles, and air filter every 10k miles. That's just what I've done since I got my license back in 1991.
