Radial tire belt separation used to be a problem, and it was suggested that you not reverse the direction of rotation once the tires were in service for any significant time. What Nipper said was the "norm", and I still like to stick with that approach. Most wear differences occur front versus rear (not so much side to side, unless there are alignment problems), so front/back rotation evens out the majority of the problem.
How often should the tires be rotated? and what tire goes where?[...]
However, unless the tires are "directional", it's considered acceptable to cross-rotate current-production tires.
See http://www.tirerack....e.jsp?techid=43 and decide for yourself.
