How To Rotate Your Tires | Broomfield Portrait Photographer

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.
