    Just a quick one. If I were to swap tires and wheels form one dually to the other, do I have to pay attention to place them all in a spot where they will rotate the same way as they did originally?

    From what I have been told by the dealer and others is.
    Always keep the rear in the same spot. Ft can go side to side with no problems.

    Put them where ever you want. There are rotation diagrams in the owners manuals of GM duallys, but since you need to dismount, mount and rebalance tires when you do it, no one ever does.
