How astute of you to remember me!
Like Tom and Ray I did the math on rotation. At the time I did not have a jack for the Leaf. It is a ‘modern’ car; it came with no jack, no spare and (for me) low profile tires that are easily lost to hidden potholes and other hazards. Recently I acquired a donut spare and jack from the Altima, both of which fit, although installing a donut on the Altima rim does require a front/back swap when removing the more vulnerable front wheel/tire.
On 10/10/16 I had an alignment done at a highly recommended shop in a large local Shell station. They insisted on a rotation (front/back) at $30 and another $90 for the alignment. Their print out says they found the following:
Rear: Left then right
Camber: -1.4° and -1.1°
Toe: 0.14" and 0.15"
Total toe: 0.29"
Thrust angle: -.01°
Front: Left then right
Camber: -0.4° and -0.6°
Caster: 4.9° and 4.7°
Toe: 0.03" and 0.09" (only out of spec reading)
After adjustment the front toe was 0.04" and 0.06"
This is all that was reported.
In early May 2017 we lost the left front tire to a hidden curb in a dark parking lot.
Both front tires were to be replaced by a local Firestone dealer with “OEM” type Bridgestone Ecopia tires. They ended up installing the Ecopia Plus, so it was important that both be replaced.
I hope this explains why I am watching the tires carefully.
