Cross rotating radials was a NO NO in the 80's but now all shops (at least
the ones I go to) recommend cross rotating radials. I always have the front
crossed to the back and the rear pulled straight forward every 10K miles. I
drive 3.5K miles a month and so does SHMBO so we have a lot of data to draw
from. We haven't had any problems with radial belt separation. Also this
schedule allows me to get 80+K miles out of 40K mile guaranteed tires.
Rotating the tires on Oletrucks at 5K miles is probably better becaust
Oletrucks steering isn't as tight as newer cars.

oletrucks is devoted to Chevy and GM trucks built between 1941 and 1959
