rotate two older front tires to left rear dually?

i scheduled to replace my 4 rear tires 12r22.5 on this coming saturday.
my front tires are 3 years old, i wanted the front to have the new ones, so asked the tire shop to rotate them to rear. that was no problem, but the guy at front desk told me to put both older ones on left rear dually as this will keep the duals with the same size. i have not heard of this, has anyone done this before?

That's how I do it, too. Your front tires have worn, making them a smaller diameter. You want each tire of a pair of duals to match each other as closely as possible. By putting 2 new ones together, and 2 used ones together, you will accomplish that goal.

I see what he's saying. If all four rear tires are worn down 1/2 inch in tread depth and the fronts are worn down 1/4 inch depth, then the newer rear tire will have more pressure on it because it's a little taller than the tire right next to it. This assumes both old front tires are worn evenly and are not worn as much as the rears.

I'm new to RV's so I haven't heard of it, but I see the logic behind it.

Be aware you will probably have to pay for moving tires onto rims as you may have steel rims on the inside and even if all are aluminum, the pretty side is facing the wrong direction

Typically the inner dual will have a steel wheel instead of the expensive aluminum, since its not visible anyway. Luxury coach brands, however, often have aluminum on both. One of the little hidden goodies that comes with the huge price tag.
