widder in the rear?

i dont plan on doing this, i was just ask because i was curious. what do yall do when you run widder tires in the rear when you rotate them? do you get non directionals and rotate left to right? arent you not supposed to do that? or do you just not rotate your tires and buy new ones all the time?

if the tires are directional and not the same size as the front there is only one thing you can do. run each tire in its correct location until it wears out. this is why many racers go out of their way to have the same tires and rim offsets front to rear. but if money is no object then run the largest tire available for each end of the car and maximise the offset of each rim.

As Tim said, unless you run AO32s, or ECSTA 700s which are reversible, and can be remounted inside out, you run til they are gone, no rotating. That said, if thats your set up, run one of those tires. Carl Byck
