CROSS ROTATE

Tires (listed in sig) have been neglected the last six months. Cupped and really loud. If I rotate in a cross pattern will they quieted down after putting some miles on them? Time to head for the lake need to get her back in towing shape.

Thanks,

The only thing I have found cross rotating to help is tire pulls in radial tires.
If they are cupped I have never had any luck in reducing vibration or noise without tire replacement.

I do the cross on these tires just to get rid of the normal wear from right left turns lefts are usually more of a gradual turn and rights are a little harsher

My last tires had to be front to rear same side

Are the ball joints all tight and in good condition?

Yes all components are tight, I went to 8000 miles on a rotation and killed the the tires. Any ideals on short term tire inflation to correct or change tire wear?

underinflation wears outer edges more and over inflation wears centers more.
I think running it on jack stands and using a cheese grater to cut them would work best.

Not trying to be a smartas% but on tire noise its just such an uphill battle.
Once the cupping starts it just keeps bouncing tire and gets worse.

Agreed just looking for different opinions on my problem. Ultimately I understand I wrecked the tires by neglecting to perform a simple rotation, Now im just trying to prolong the life of what I have. If cross rotation doesnt work and inflation doesnt help I may try the cheese grater. Willing to learn something new.

If you go for the cheesegrater I definately want a youtube video. lol
Maybe on the back they will be tolerable for the runs to the lake.
Maybe with a good load on them it will take the bounce out and somehow you will get lucky

Cupping has more to do with alignment issue than rotation schedules. If you're tires are cupping, then a rotation (cross or straight) is only going to be a band aid.

If it really were an issue of rotation schedule, then wouldn't the rears be cupped also?

Tires will cup if they are not rotated or if they are not balanced as well.
At this point an alignment would be a good diagnostic step.
