so last time it was in the shop for a check up i asked them to rotated the tires but i noticed that they didn't rotate the left side:eek:(left a mark on tires) so i went to my autoshop at school and rotated the the 2 on the left. i used the Air hammer at least thats what i think its called and tightened them down. But like should i use a torqueing wrench on it or is it ok the way it is. Not Sure if i should:confused:.

My tires are directional so I just switch the back with the fronts. The wear is even left to right, but as you can imagine, the rears wear down more than the fronts =P

I use German torque values (goodentight) and have never had a problem :) But by 100 he means 100 ft/lbs torque, which you need a torque wrench to measure.

I rotate my tires like this:

Back tires both go straight forward and front ones go back and cross over on the back.

100 Foot pounds, actually the spec is like 85-110. I always use a torque wrench to go the extra mile after i use a pnuematic wrench/ air gun. and yea, i can only go front to rear too with my tires, not left side to right side and vice versa.

Dude, did you check your air pressure? If you were pulling to one side and it's not as noticable now you may have just been a little low on your tire pressure on one of your front wheels. It would not be as noticable on the back as they are not steer tires. If you get about ten pounds low it pulls pretty good to the low side. Also, double check your tires to make sure they are non directional if you are crossing them on a rotation.

I would rotate my tires but Id looki kinda funny with 275's up front an 225's in the rear, and the directionals kinda make it hard too
