Non-directional radials.....daily driver, do you swap side-to-side (change rotation) or keep them on the same side?

Depends if rwd/fwd/4wd. The pic posted above is correct, but usually I will rotate according to wear, or choppiness from worn shocks.

Fail. Next rotation they will be at the same position.

You cross only one axle's pair. Then over 4 rotations, each tire has hit each corner and evened out it's wear.

Tire shops and dealers often just do front to back, cuz too lazy to open the owner's manual or give a rip about a proper rotation.

Unless your car is out of whack (ie: accident rebuild), it shouldn't need more that oppositional and front/rear wear pattern evening....

NOT a fail, keyboard jockey....
