How would you go about rotating your tires if you have wider wheels in the rear & if the rims are directional? Like the 300zx TT rims. Im looking into getting some but I dont know if it would be a hassle to get the TT ones over the N/A ones.

You don't.

If your tires are directional, you can only rotate them front/back on the same side. If they are different widths, you're stuck with it.

If you can't afford replacing tires more often due to not being able to rotate.. then you can't afford the rims http://www.freshalloy.com/

how if you switch the left and right tires instead of rotate the wheels?

As long as the tires are not directional, that's fine.

Yes, they are directional, and different widths front and rear -- i.e. 4 different wheels.

You dismount all 4 tires from the 4 wheels. The rear tires swap onto the opposite rear wheels and the front tires swap onto the opposite front wheels. If you buy your tires new from Discount Tire and then get the lifetime balance and rotation then you can argue that you've already paid all the fee's and you can usually convince them not to charge you any dismouting and mounting fee's.

Sorry to correct but on radial tires, which most modern tires are, the tires always have to rotate in the same direction. If they rotate the opposite way for any amount of time, the steel belting could actually delaminate, then you have big problems.

That's my line... and I could at least a dozen other threads where it should be posted... cheapness kills.
