By the time the lowest tread depth is at the 'time to change' point ,they will likely be aged out .Rotating to even this wear is pointless.
I leave mine until its age out time. 8years or so.

Nor are Fords, and the inside dual is gray steel. Very labor intensive to swap in a X-cross pattern.

I would not bother. The little benefit will not be worth the effort unless you are running really high miles. I have been around trucks all my life and my former boss used to rotate tires on triaxle dumps (14 tires) at the end of the day it was not worth spending 2-3 hours swapping tires to get perfect wear. the only way to do the steering axle was to dismount both tires and flip them. Those were trucks that did 350-400mi per day.

I don't rotate tires on any of my vehicals. An old timer once told me "once the front or back tire gets worn in on the front or back it's set for that axle" and to leave it alone.

Dually Owners - Do you rotate your tires? If so, how often? And how?

In my experience, I have an '06 Dodge dually with a 6 sp manual. When I ran custom wheels on it,...I didn't care about the rotation because of the hassle of dismounting all of the wheels and tires. My rears ALWAYS wore out quicker than the fronts. All six tires would wear flat evenly across the tread. Currently I'm running stock steels with 285s on it. I rotate every 6k. I don't cross at all, because they wear the same. I rotate front-inside, inside-outside, outside-front. It keeps it simple for the tire shops. I have them set my pressures at 80 front and 45 rears,...even wear all the time. As agreed to what was mentioned,...those aftermarket wheels make it undesirable to do rotations. My question is, why not rotate them if it's not a hassle? When you have rear tires,...in my case, that would wear down, and my fronts would have almost half the tread on them,...that's a waste of money. You know you're gonna buy 6 new tires.
