Does anyone know since the rear tires are a little wider , im asuming it is not correct to put them in the front when it comes time to rotating them, So is all i can do is rotate side to side the tires?

AND the tires MUST be dismounted from the rims and swapped side to side. You cannot just put a rear rim/tire combo on the other side. The tread on the stock tires is directional and must rotate in a given direction. If you rotate the tires side to side without dismounting them from the rims, you will violate the rotation of the tire. You need to take the car to a shop and have them dismount the tires and rotate them. It is an expensive hassle, but worth it.

I wouldn't bother with the swap since you'll pay like $100 or more to do it. Doing that every 5K would be more than getting new tires. The rear wear very flat. The front would help if you have feathering (if it hasn't started).

Do yourself a favor and just get a lifetime alignment for $150 and get it aligned often.
