OK, moving front tires only to the rear wheels and vice versa are fine. You do have to look at the tread pattern for a given tire-autoxgtr
I was asking about moving the fronts to the back, and the backs to the front. It did it cross my mind to dismount and or flip them. It's my first time not running oems In the staggered size. I went with 285 square to try and get some more life and also a smoother ride. As always you post very good info.
Racing slicks- no treads so flipping is a good way to move less used inner treads to outer location, tires heat unevenly so rubber compound on inner vs outer treads can be more or less heat cycled. A tire durometer may allow you to check the difference. If the tire carcass heats up as with track use then the whole tire more or less may be heat cycled so flipping can be used to move worn out rubber to a less used position.
Directional tires- are meant to be used with respect to the direction of travel so tires on one side of the car usually stay on that side unless inner and outer tread pattern is the same. Then you can move right front to left rear to allow inner treads to move to outer location
Asymmetric tires - have different tread patterns for outer and inner treads and are not always directional. For the GTR this is a common pattern for tires, you can move front right to left rear depending on how much wear you have on outer and inner treads.
Most important is to move tires early enough to get good wear once it is moved. Once tires are worn they may not wear as evenly, also as tires age the rubber gets harder and tire wear may not be as good or even.
The biggest benefit of running 285/35-20 square is to put more tire on the front OEM wheels, you get more grip and more rubber to work with. Combined with good driving skill you can get much more performance out of the car. Since all four tires are the same size the AWD system works well.
