Mark Tires To Verify Correct Rotation

Being a woman (even a man) you can feel that you're being taken advantage of when it comes to maintaining your vehicle if you have no car experience.

My dad encountered a bad experience before where he brought his car in for a tire rotation/balance and the work was never performed. His trick in knowing was that he marked his rim (or you can mark your tire) with a Sharpie. Plus, if the marking bothers you, it is very easy to remove with rubbing alcohol.

By making your mark on each rim like A, B, C, D or 1, 2, 3, 4. We just made X on the (2) front rims and since we have rear wheel drive our front tires will be rotated to the back.

Just remember how you mark on your rims/tires and afterwards make sure they are not in the same order and have been properly rotated.

How do you mark a black tire with a black Sharpie?

The black Sharpie ink is darker than the tire so it shows up. But you could use a silver one or another color if you were concerned.

You will still see the black sharpie mark on the black tire. It is slightly darker and less noticeable compared to just marking it on the rims like I did. But with the rims, it is easy to remove also.

Yes, another color like silver, gold or white will show up vibrantly too.
