    Default Tyre rotation when one set has tyre pull

    Hi All

    I'm due for an alignment and rotation.

    Problem is that my two tyres on the rear of my vehicle give me slight tyre pull when they're on the front.
    They still have lots of tread so not replacing them.

    Should I just not rotate? or swap the tyres left to right?

    Thanks

    Rotate as per normal and see what they do. A lot of times the tyre 'settles' and don't cause pulling on the front again. Rotate first, then do alignment. Sometimes changing tyres can skew the steering wheel.
