Toyo question

Can they be rotated anywhere on the car after using them only one event? Front-back, left-right?

WELL ???

I usually just rotate mine front to back, since they are a directional tire. They have a direction arrow on the side in wich they are ment to be run. But good question!!!!

Once they are shaved and run, you can install them however you like. The directional marking is there for full tread wet usage.

John - they work best if you mount them on your trailer. The trailer tires are better for racing. So, switch 'em. Not many people know about that trick.

YES!

And tow the trailer - that will balance the car better - more weight in the rear... you won't believe the difference!

the key is downshifting...

John,
Next time you are driving hard thru a corner simply push the throttle all the way to the floor as fast as you can just after you turn in - the rear end of your car will pass the front end of the car and you will rotate the tires on track - much easier than using jackstands!!!

then again you are driving one of those DOHC thingy's - so you'll need to make sure you have downshifted two or three gears before attempting this as those DOHC thingy's don't have enough torque to complete the tire rotation...

Hope this helps
