Rotation pattern is important because in most cases, the tires on the front axle need to accomplish very different things than the tires on the rear axle. Conditions encountered on a front-wheel drive vehicle are considerably different than those of a rear-wheel drive vehicle. Each individual wheel position can create different wear rates and different types of tire wear.
Most people in PEI just rotate their tires as they change over to the new season but having them rotated according to the manufacturer’s recommendation will never hurt. It will only help you to get the most out of your tires.
