Hey Boso , if you are going to rotate tires keep in mind the direction they have been rolling,you are going to have to bring six tires into a four tire position, sounds weird I know, the first movement could be left rear outside to right front, and right rear outside to left front, next rotation you could do a left front to left rear inside, and right front to right rear inside. just keep track were you are in the rotation process. Good luck. Maybe someone else has a better idea!

If I was going to rotate them I would move the tires from the rear axle to the front on the same side then the front to the back.

Hey Ford , We are talking about six tires on a sunseeker, it has dual rears. You shouldn't move the outside rears to the front on the same side , you are changing the direction of rotation of the tire.

I doubt the tires are directional so it is of little consequence.

The two inside on the rear HAVE been turning in the same direction as the steering tires so if you go from front to back on the same side direction of rotation is the same.

Check your owner's manual and also your tire manufacturer's recommendations.

Our MBS 2041 has a very specific regimen for tire rotation in the owner's manual. It is switch front with rear inside, same side, and switch rear outside with rear outside on the opposite side (so those two change turning direction).

However, the text contains a little qualifier: "DUAL TIRES AT THE REAR: If your vehicle is equipped with tires of the same size, the tires on the front axle can be rotated with the inner tires on the rear axle in pairs so that the intended rotation (spinning) direction of the tires remains the same. If the tread pattern on the tires is not unidirectional, the outer tires on the rear axle can be rotated from one side to the other." [underlining added]

It does not say what to do if the tires are unidirectional, but presumably in that case you would rotate the three on the same side in a circular pattern, just be sure to go clockwise or counter-clockwise each time or you will (too quickly) end up back where you started.
