Left to right is what the manual calls for. However...I would not do that. Most rotations involving same-size tires are front to rear.

Well, I did take a picture before I left this morning. You can see the front is larger...and if you turn your head around, you'll make out the faint 245 on the rear.

Hey on a ss the front and rear calipers require different spacing of the rims...the offset to clear the calipers as the rears are larger.....Thus when i installed my new wheels the rear wheels are wider and have a larger amount of backspacing.....20mmm front vs 30mm rear to clear the brakes........
SO I know your a v-6 I hope you have no problem with say scratches to the calipers.....I doubt it as you have been driving it. Just a little known fact that hey the rims in the rear are wider and have a different backspacing for a reason....My fronts will not fit the rear without rubbing my calipers or maybe not even turning...........And hopefully its different on a v-6 as your calipers may be the same size..or have enough stock backspacing to clear.

Um...

I dont know what those are. Checked it online, something to do with my brakes? I think my brakes are fine. I've been driving it for months with the tires reversed after all...

I put about 4000 miles on mine before I found out about it. I did see any damage the rims or calipers. The V^ does not have the large calipers like the V8 has so the rims will clear with out any problems

No.
Marked for outside vs. inside. Deeper tread on the outside to blow water out.

I haven't decided if I want to rotate mine. To me, going from side to side does not help even out the tire wear. If the right front tire is worn on the outer edge, putting it on the left front will still have the worn edge on the outside. What's the point....

Why rotate tires? Here's why....

Bunch of BS.
Like 3,000 mile oil changes.
You have steers and drives.
Replace the sets in pairs.
Who imagines the left wears out quicker or slower than the right?
Unless you are driving on an oval and seconds in a pit stop mean something.
Do you ever see a race crew rotating tires?
We all make rights and lefts.
Many tire professionals and manufacturers have studied the wear patterns of tires for different types of vehicles in different countries. My wife worked for Michelin Tires for many years. Essentially this is what their research has found....

"The outside, front tire is worn disproportionately. Cloverleaf interchanges, and parking ramps turn right in left hand drive (otherwise known as right hand traffic) countries, causing the left front tire to be worn faster than the right front. Furthermore, right turns are tighter than left turns, also causing more tire wear. Conversely the sidewalls on the right tire tends to be bumped and rubbed against the curb while parking the vehicle, causing asymmetric sidewall wear. The symmetric opposite occurs in countries that drive on the left."

Now, that being said, if your front and rear tires are different sizes and are directional (can only go in one direction) then you can not rotate tires. Some posters and readers of this forum have different tires than those that came from the factory so any blanket statement about your model or year may not be absolutely true.

EVERYONE makes mistakes. And just because they do, they are not instantly branded idiots. People who constantly make the same mistakes or don't learn by them, do get honor of being getting the idiot lable.
Dealers like every other business have a hard time finding good help and includes all levels - managers, sales persons, mechanics and floor washers. Dealerships that continually hire incompetent employees and don't care about customer service, are fools for obvious reasons, and probably fall into the idiot category.

Just sayin'....

Exactly. If you rotate the right and left, the outside is still outside and inside is still inside. If MYDLIFECRISIS has the stock Pzeros, he is spreading misinformation.

PZeros are not directional. They have an inside and outside but not directional. You can swap side to side.

I never had to fill in a camaro warranty card afterall.
Remind me of a George Thorougood song "now Friday come I didn't have the rent and out the door I went" LOL

As long as you are willing to pay them for service you may or may not need they will be nice as pie, but wow what a screw up!!

Dean.
And my 2012 2LT (non-RS) has PZero Nero 245/50-19 all seasons all around, which also can be rotated.
