Tire Rotation - 2010 RAM
 
Confusion here over tire rotation pattern. I have a 2010 HEMI RAM Big Foot with the Goodyear Wrangler HP P275-60R20. My truck has 6300 miles and I want to do my best maximize tire life. I cannot find anything in the owners manual or the tire info that came with my truck regarding rotation pattern. The dealer is tight lipped about the rotation pattern. I do much of my own mechanical work so the dealer is not very interested in giving out free information I guess. Numerous Google searches were of no help and there is absolutely no tire rotation pattern info in any of my documentation that I received with my truck.

I'm a little old school so correct me if I'm wrong but I thought you always put the tire in the opposite place. Such as the front driver tire would go to the passenger rear.

on my '09 Ram 1500
the dealer said that tire rotation is right front to right rear, left front to left rear every time.
the dealership & Discount Tire both agree, there is no X pattern involved

tire rotation should be done between 3000 - 5000 miles, most every website reads 5000 miles

it should be in your drivers manual, the manual is free & you can ask the Parts Dept. for one, if you didn't get it
if the Parts Dept. won't order you the manual, you can call Chrysler & they will gladly send you one

i got mine when i bought mine, it was in the center console

Go to http://www.dodge.com click on "for owners" then download the owner's manual

I talked to the guy at the tire shop and he basically told me what yankee posted already. It is not supposed to be done in the x pattern.

It's weird but I've heard that too.

My whole life the rule was always: Front to rear, drive tires switch sides. Regardless of vehicle.

Just putting this out there, the 2010 owners manual shows the X. :4-dontknow: However I'm with GTyankee and others, I have always been told that with radial tires you don't cross over. I.E. no X pattern. This is the way I have been rotating mine, back to front only.

It all depends upon whether or not your ties have a directional tread. Directional treads can't be crossed because you have to change the direction of ration when you switch sides of the vehicle. In this case you simply go front to back on the same side. Otherwise, I'd say use the 'x' pattern as shown in the manual.

I evaluate the wear pattern and rotate the tires in a matter that will maximize tire lift. On Ram trucks I typically cross the fronts and move them to the rear and bring the rears straight forward.
