Rotation ideas?

What is the best method of rotating the tires, especially these factory 20's?
front to back?
criss-cross?

The tires are directional! Just had a guy in DTW wreck his truck because he criss crossed them. Pulled all the rain to the center of the tire instead of pushing it out the sides!

Criss-crossing the tires can also lead to broken belts. when you cross them you change the rotation and push the belts in a direction that they are not use to rotating in. This info came from the goodyear rep that covered our store.

I knew about not criss crossing them, but not thr reason. That is definitely a good reason to cross them.

that's a myth. It's ok to criss cross the radial tires, unless they have a directional tread. Ck any tire manufacturer's website aand they usually have recommended rotation patterns for their tires. here's one from Michelin.
