okay, so far heres what i know:
theres 2 ways to rotate 4 wheel drive car tires:
do it in a X pattern
OR
have the tires switch front to back but stay on the left or right side (for directional tires)

i know the sti doesn't have directional tires but i've already changed them as if they were... should i go back and redo it or leave them?

You want a pattern that allows each tire to occupy each position after enough rotations.

Move the front tires stright back, and move the back tires up, but for the back ones, switch which side of the car they go on.

What do you mean the sti's aren't directional??? Not only are they directional, they have left and right sides.

Hey, thanks for the link to the previous post, I stand corrected. Kind of makes you wonder how important the sipes are if they're reversed on one side of the car. Weird.
