Don't do it......Most staggered are unidirectional.....the only way is to unmount the tires from the rim to make the right and left go the right direction. You should not go front to rear.

If you take the car to the dealer and request a tire rotation, what do they do?

Side to Side if the tires are non-directional like the F1s on my Challenger and the RSAs on our Jeep. Just look at the tire sidewall to see if they are directional.

I just had my oil changed at the dealer on Monday. He said they rotated the tires b/c they needed it, and i didn't think much of it at the time as I was ready to get out of there. What do my eyes see today when washing it, they rotated them front to rear.... Guess Im making a trip back to the dealer.

Wait! Are you saying they actually put the larger tires in the front and the smaller ones in the back?!?

That is correct JFF. I suppose I could just go do couple good burnouts to even them up real quick before swapping them around again!

Ummm......WOW.

And you didn't notice this when you went to get in to drive it home? LOL!

I would certainly complain LOUDLY to the service manager at this dealership. They need to fire the rookie that made this mistake. Sheeesh.

Side-to-side rotation is pretty critical for this car, if you got staggered sizes front and rear. If they also happen to be unidirectional, then you're kinda screwed.

It's not that I really needed 370 hp...but having 150+ hp riding shotgun at a moment's bidding w/o a 6000 rpm moonshot is what makes me feel like I'm in the right car for me. The roar of a v8 seals the deal!

The Google keyword is "ethanol-free gas". The truth is coming to light. Check out http://pure-gas.org/
