just wondering the proper way to rotate tires, i'll try and make a diagram


FRONT OF CAR
1---------------2




3---------------4

some people tell me that for a FWD car you should do it this way:

1->3
2->4
3->2
4->1

but other people tell me to just do it the traditional way:

1->4
2->3
3->2
4->1


which is the best way to rotate the tires? by the way, i do not race or anything and this is for a daily driver.

thanks

the toyota manual shows this
i would tell u what it says but i dont have it off hand
the is a difference between front and rear wheel drive vehicles
correct me if i am wrong but i think for the celica it would be like so:


BEFORE
======

front
1 ------ 2


3 ------ 4


AFTER
====

front
3 ------ 4


2 ------ 1

right and left tires have to be switched since, in general, you will turn right more than left

like i said im not positive so someone check out he manual..
;D
