Default Re: Tyre rotation

Interesting topic, it seems the main confusion is regarding whether to do a cross rotation with radial tires. While going through an old Maruti 800 service manual this is what I found:

Maruti it seems only recommends cross rotation of Bias tires (aka nylon tires). For the radial tires it doesn't recommend cross rotation, though it recommends that the spare tire be rotated with tires from one side.

Wrong info brother. Just checked the owners manual(both soft copy and hard) of 2000 M800 and 2013 SX4

This is what they had to say:

After seeing your post I also went through my 01 Zen's owners manual. The diagram on that thing is the exact same diagram you shared from your 00 M800's owners manual, even the little code written on the bottom is same.

The photo I shared initially is from a Maruti 800 5 speed service manual, its a 644 page long pdf file. I am uploading the pdf here, please check page no. 185. The document looks authentic to me, what do you think? If this document is correct, then it seems even the Maruti guys were confused about this topic.

Bumping up an older thread.

My Vento TSI runs on 185/60R15 Vectra. Completed the second service at 21000 kms. I specifically asked for wheel rotation during my last service and I have marked the tyres previously to know which side they are in before rotation.

After the service I did not see notice any rotation and all tyres are in the exact same place as before. When I enquired with the service advisor, he told me that he rotated the tyres and found the steering to be tilting towards left and he moved them back to initial position.

Am I being taken for a ride here?
