My boyfriend loves spending the weekends working on his car, so when a Sunday in January turned out to be particularly warm, he took his car out to the parking lot and rotated the tires. As a Broomfield-based portrait photographer, I love photographing people doing the things they’re most passionate about. This was also a great time for me to practice photographing in harsh mid-day light.
Think of this post as an illustrated tire rotation tutorial.
Step 1: Google what direction of rotation works best for your tires.
Step 2: Jack up your car.
Step 3: Loosen the bolts and remove the tires.
Step 4: DO NOT put you foot under the tire of the car that is being held up by $20 jack stands in the Walmart parking lot! (Unless you have steel toes, then it’s probably fine)
Step 5: Rotate according to the instructions you googled earlier.
Step 6: DO NOT put your head under the car that is being held up by $20 jack stands in the Walmart parking lot!
Step 7: Tighten the bolts and lower the car.
Step 8: (Not shown) Re-tighten bolts after driving about 100 miles.
