Dumb question...

Sick, can't think well enough on how to go about searching, and I cant rationally figure this out, brain is mush after working 13 hours sick. So please forgive me if this is asked often and/or if its dumb...

Drivers rear tire on my 330i ZHP is bad, (gash in side-wall, plugged twice, has lasted 5-6 thousand miles, spring-fall, don't drive it much anymore, but leaking now that the temperature has gone cold) new one showed up today =)

With my car NOT having LSD, is one tire more apt to spin over the other? Or does it just depend on the corner I'm going around?

I ask because the other tire has 5-6 thousand miles on it. It wouldn't cost very much more to have it swapped over to the drivers-side if the passenger-side is more apt to spin. Or if by "rotating" that other tire I'm able to get a few extra miles out of it. I know my car has negative camber from the factory, but its minimal, I've replaced the rear tires before.

Hope that makes sense, ugh, be sure to lysol this post after reading it...


Thanks in advance! Planning to have it put on tomorrow.
