Dully Tire Rotation

This is my first dully. I have a 2011 Ram 3500 4x4 and I wanted to know how/what is the best way to rotate the tires.

I've heard lately that it is not a good idea to rotate left to right (or vice versa) unless you are having irregular tire wear (i'm not talking about duallys). On;y go front to back...

Can't tell from your avatar. Do you have the steel wheel with simulators or the alcoas?

The 2 diagrams on the right pertain to tires with irregular tire wear, and how to rotate if you have this condition. The 2 on the left are for general dually rotation schedules.

Oh ok thanks bud. I dont have any irregular tire wear as of right now. One i hit the 7500 mile marker ill rotate them. My oil change indicator came on at 5600 miles so I had to change it before the 7500 marker but decided to wait to do the tire rotation and lube the front drive shaft fitting until i hit the 7500 mile marker.

Oh also would you happen to know if one of the two on the bottom left has any preferences/benefits over one of the other? I guess it would just be up to the owner huh. Seems like the one on the bottom to the very left would be more expensive than the other on the bottom left since it would require you to break down the tires and put them back on rim to rotate them.


Do you know where to get the best valve extenders from for the rear tires?

I don't know how to do links but the company is out of southern California and is called "Dually Valves". They do not extend your present valves but bolt directly to the wheel. I have used them in several of my duallies. Good product but they are not cheap and the tire/wheel must be broken down. I have not found it necessary to rotate tires on my dually trucks.

oh ok ill look them up and see. So their valves just replace the OEM ones and are longer? Are they stainless steel or plastic?

Do you think you'd get more miles on a set of tires if you rotated them? or no?
