Default Tire Rotation Pattern

Got an '07 V6 Accord EX-L with 17" Michelin Pilot MXM4 tires (OEM) that it's
time to rotate.

Do I do an "X" rotation or just swap them front to back on the same side?

I've been doing a front to back rotation for over two decades now. No
issues with premature tire wear or handling.

What does the owner's manual say?

That has little to do with the question of tire rotation.

Really?

Have you looked?

Mine tells how the tires should be rotated.

Yes, really.

I don't need to look at the manual for everyday normal things that I
have been doing for decades.

Maybe you're one of those people who needs to read the manual, until
you gain more life experiences.

That was the problem-- X for non-directional tires, same-side for
directionals. I don't know which my tires are...

Have you considered looking at the sidewalls and seeing what they are,
that's if you can't tell by looking at the tread. :^)

It truly doesn't matter which way you rotate the tires if they aren't
directionals. Corner to corner or front to back. The key is to rotate
them and keep the proper air pressure in them all the time. It's all
about preventative maintenance and tire longevity.

You've been doing front to back rotation on an '07 V6 Accord EX-L for decades?

If they are directionals, there should be an arrow on the sidewall
indicating the direction of rotation.
