dually tire rotation question.

so i painted my stock steels black, but am probably not gunna paint the rear inners. so how do you go about rotating them without me having to put the inners on the outsides? can i just rotate the front to the outside rears and be ok with that?

x2 Break 'em down and move the tire$ to another rim, OR paint both sides.

That would place the inside out. Rotating dually tires always leaves the dirty insides facing out, followed by a nice cleanup chore.

The dually front tire wear pattern needs a rotate cycle to run them first on the outer and then on the inner to even 'em out and be ready for another go on the front again.

For a 6-tire rotation, Iíve always used a directional pattern of inside rears straight to front, fronts crossed to outside rears and outside rears crossed to inside rears, which are then ready to head straight forward again for the next cycle.

[QUOTE=Hook'em_Horns!;217991]x2 Break 'em down and move the tire$ to another rim, OR paint both sides.

i painted frontside and backside of the front wheels and painted the frontside and backside of the rear outers, so i painted the front and back sides of 4 wheels. i guess ill have to paint the inners too so i can properly rotate tires. its a compicated story to why i ask this...

I like Ďem. Theyíre sticky, very difficult to break traction. Very well made, usually only requiring 0-1oz of weight to balance, and thatís probably just compensating for the wheel alone.

Excellent sidewall support, bank hard into a curve on a flyover ramp with a loaded GN and they bite with no drift or sway. Make a hard sweeping right cut (GN on) on an oily road with just a mist of rain on it and they bite hard with no drift, whether loaded or empty.

Youíll virtually never have the ABS kick in under wet or dry conditions, loaded or empty. I cannot make these hydroplane, regardless of tread depth. Something about the tread design and dual layer compounds change as the tread wears.

I once was caught in a heavy storm on the interstate with a GN in tow, so dark at 2pm it looked like 2AM out. This was a new 8-lane section with excellent drainage; however, the water was so deep that at 48 mph I had a 6í tall wake on either side. I checked with dispatch for the Radar input and they ran out of colors! Black is 12+ inches per hour. They just wonít break loose.

although its not totally correct i have a similar problem. I have an 08 dually and i dont like the dually look of the front rim. So i bought ultra goliath dually rears and regular style goliath front wheels. I took the spacr of the front to accomplish this. truck looks awesome with a 17x9 on the front and dually rears. i run 33 12 50 17 cooper stt. Now i cant rotate front to back so i rotate the front tires side to side very 5k. They are wearing perfect, and the rears are wearing perfect as well. So sisde to side could be another option for you? just a thought
