GT500 Tire Rotation

Do you guys rotate the tire on your GT500s?

If so, how do you do it? Left to right?

Most high performance tires can only be rotated front to back since they can only rotate in one direction. Not like other cars where you move the fronts to the back and then crossover the rears to the front.

I believe the GT500 wheels are staggered but not unidirectional, which would allow for switching the sides (LR to RR & LF to RF). If they are are staggered and unidirectional, then the only way would be to take them off the rims and I don't think very many people would do this.

Good point... A real pain to break the tires down each time.
