Yes, you can rotate the tires. No, you can NOT rotate the wheels.

Grow up.

As one who owned 2 IROCZs that had different offsets front to rear, it is really not a big deal to pull the tires off and remount for rotating.
But I quit rotating them because I was buying 180 tread wear tires that only lasted 20k miles so there was no reason to rotate.
And secondly, I have owned 3cadillac SRXs that had 235s up front and 255s on the rear.
Obviously they can't be rotated. They wore fine.
I know have a GTO with 8.5" rims front and 9.5" on the rear. They can't be rotated.
They are wearing perfectly.
These are performance cars, the tires aren't going to last 60k Miles. Why bother at all with rotating?

They can as long as they don't have a specified "OUTSIDE" sidewall.


Edit: if cornering and handling is really important to you, there is nothing wrong with the appearance of tires on wheels of max recommended width to perhaps half an inch wider. Most of the folks who don't care for that look can't look past the appearance to understand the why.

Have good life.....

Take your own advice and read it all over.

It's been stated several times, by you, me, and others, that yes you can rotate the tires (with a little extra work), but not the wheels.

We are saying the same thing in different ways.

My point is that when most people state "rotate the tires", they mean the entire wheel and tire. I'm trying to make it clear.

As you can tell by the numerous topics asking the same questions over and over and over, replies and answers need to be given as clear as possible.

Today a read on the new R&T issue, that their Camaro 1LE came with 20X10 on all 4 wheels.
New Camaro 1LE owners, please confirm this.
I still see on the Camaro web page 20X10 F & 20X11 R.
