I rotate mine when I do my bearing repack. The rears are getting dragged sideways more than the fronts when turning sharp. Can't hurt.

My dually is a 2WD flat bed so because of that I have traction tires in the back and steer tires in the front. No rotation for me.
I tried the regular tires all the way around and it was even more helpless. Seriously this thing gets stuck on wet grass when empty. I will never have another 2wd truck, but since I got it for $100.00 I am not going to complain.....tooo much

Providing you have matching wheels that would be the correct fashion.
The problem we typically have is only 4 pretty alloy wheels 2 steel. So, re-mounting the tires on the correct rims to look nice isn't worth the added expense in my opinion. YMMV. The tire wear has not been that much different to merit rotation. Especially true with trailers, they will "time out" long before the tread is gone.
Another point is if you've ever clipped a curb (most frequent cause of belt damage, causing catastrophic failures) do you want to play Russian roulette and move it to an unknown spot or, a steering position?
Be well.

Our manual said move the tires from one side to the other. No moving tires forward or back. 4X4 450, limited slip.

Be well.
If I am that concerned about a damaged tire on my trailer or tow vehicle I'll remove it from service or at least have it looked at. Otherwise, I can always write down the tire serial and location I installed it on my records.

No rotation on our DRW either. Not worth the hassle.

Got 80k miles out of current set on the rear. We typically go through 2 sets of steer tires to 1 set of rear tires on our dually. We are currently running all terrain BF Goodrich which is the same tire/brand as what it came from the factory with.
