2013 5 Tire Rotation

So I tried to search, but that isn't working right now. I plan on starting the 5 tire rotation this weekend (about time for the first one) and I'm a little confused about the Tire pressure monitors. Is there a way to activate/reprogram where each tire is, or do only 4 of them have sensors?

Also, with the stock BFG M/Ts, a five tire rotation will be fine correct? I see a lot of varying viewpoints on whether radial tires should be swapped to the other side or not.

Thanks a bunch for any help!

Five tire rotation is fine, and preferred. TPMS will do it's thing on its own, there is a sensor in each tire.

All five tires have sensors. Your JK knows which tire is the spare and doesn't monitor its pressure while on the spare mount. No matter what tire is on the spare rack, it always shows pressures for the four tires on the ground.

I can't tell you if it re-learns which tire is at what corner, but I'm betting that is the case.

I'd definitely do 5 tire rotations, especially with Mud Terrains. I rotated mine a few weeks ago... They do wear quickly.

Awesome, thanks a lot guys! Ya I have a feeling these tires will be toasted soon, that is unless I pitch them once snow hits!

Here the rotation I do every 3-4k. Maybe overkill, but.....

Sorry for the crude drawing but couldn't find the original drawing I used.

Here's a 5 tire for a rear wheel drive. That front cross is for front wheel drive.

I've been doing this for a decade and my cholesterol numbers are the best they have ever been and blood pressure is down too! In short, do it, 5 tire rotations cold save your life

I didn't realize that one rotation is for FWD and the X is for RWD.... good to know

JF is a wealth of knowledge

Thanks,

John

Awesome, thanks! I saw that one on a tire store site the other day and figured it looked good.

Well this is excellent news, any little help for the health is always nice! Will it earn me more mod money too?

From manual:
"A tire pressure monitoring sensor is located in the spare wheel if the vehicle is equipped with a matching full size spare wheel and tire assembly. The matching full size spare tire can be used in place of any of the four road tires"
