Tire rotation?

My front tires are cupping. I getting an alignment & new Koni shocks which I hope will stop the cupping. I'm going to rotate the 2 front tires to the back. I've heard to schools of thought on this. 1 - put the front tire on the inside dually on the same side that it was on up front. 2 - put both front tires together on the dually's on same side. This is because the front tire has worn differently then the duallys' & there will be a difference in size between the two. I'm also told RV tires don't have a rotation direction so they can be put on either side of the coach. Anyone have more information on any of this?

Check the date code on all the tires before you make a decision. If the tires you have on the front are close to aging out you'd be further ahead to replace them now and leave the rears where they are.
While you're at it check the date codes on the rear also.
I'm old school about rotating steel belted radial tires. I still believe strongly the steel belts take a set after running in one direction. Changing directions can lead to loosening of the belts and cause separation. Many tire manufacturers will disagree but they don't want to lose sales when another manufacturer says it's OK to change direction on their tires. It's your call
Six years IMO is old enough to consider replacement of a tire regardless of mileage and tread depth. Some say more, some say less but it's my and my family's life on the line and I won't take the risk to save a few dollars. Some folks will spend thousands of dollars on fancy gadgets but won't spring for a set of tires which are the controlling factor in starting, stopping and steering.

Sometimes rotation isn't possible without swapping out the valve stems as well. Mine couldn't be swapped other than same location side to side due to the valve stems.

I really can't rotate my tires anyway as I have a more aggressive tread on the rear than on the front. The fronts are Michelin steer tires while I had Firestone tires put on the rear. We park on grass sites most of the time and the Michelin tires which were on the rear just didn't have the traction I wanted when the grass got wet from rain. The front tires were new just before I bought my coach and the rears were a couple years old. Low mileage on the rears but they just didn't have any grip when the grass got wet.

If the tires are cupping that generally means that the air pressure is too low.
