The video above shows you how to rotate the tires on your 2004 Volkswagen Passat without requiring any special tools. When you rotate the tires on your Passat, check for unusual wear on the treads. If one side of the tire is more worn than the other, then you should have your wheels aligned by a professional. If the center of the tire has more wear, check your tire pressure as your tires are likely over-inflated. If both edges of your tires have more wear, your tires are likely underinflated.
