Dually - 6 wheel tire rotation. How???
Did some searches and couldn't find this.
The manual gives a diagram that's simple enough but obviously WRONG! There are 4 aluminum wheels and 2 steel - you can't put a steel wheel to the outside. Well, you could, but it would look pretty dumb!
Anyway, I think the rotation should be:
- exchange left and right inner steel rims
- front wheels go straight back
- rear outer wheels mount to opposite side on front
What do you think?
EDIT: a minute after posting the above, I found this in the 2012 owners manual (it's not in the 2011 manual)
Vehicles with polished forged aluminum dual wheels have three unique wheels; a front, a rear outer and a rear inner.
These wheels cannot be rotated to another position, however, they can be rotated from left to right to the same position.
I suppose that answers my question but raises the question: why the heck wouldn't they make the front and rear aluminum wheels the same????
