... when apparently, according to the article YOU posted to prove they COULD, on some tires it is NOT okay. So to keep things clear for the non- mechanically inclined such as I, you need to specify that SOME can be rotated indiscriminately, but CHECK YOURS, because some have restrictions on where they can be rotated - just as frankdamp said.
Well if YOU would read it again, I said only that just having 'radial tires' does not mean YOU have to keep them in the same direction. The article I posted says the same UNLESS they are DIRECTIONAL tires. Now DIRECTIONAL tires ARE NOT damaged by going 'backwards'. Rather they are DIRECTIONAL due to their tread design which is optimized for best wet traction in one, well, direction. Thus, it is not recommended that your reverse the rotation on them while rotating.
And, if YOU would look at the picture I posted, it also gives YOU the same options, reverse rotation and same rotation..
I suggest YOU quit trying to pick a fight and actually try to understand whats going on before YOU post crap..
edit: And no, YOUR RV tires ARE NOT directional tires and therefore YOU do not need to worry about it.
