Sure don't on mine when I see the scrub marks on my concrete drive. All 4 tires leave marks on my tires, the inside tires on the turn just mark more.

X2.

When they first came out 40 some years ago, you had to keep them on one side. Not anymore. I just looked at 6 owners manuals for the cars in my family (mine, wife's, son's, daughter's,) and they all show the X-pattern and none of them even discuss keeping any on the same side. This is for cars, of course. Trailer tires COULD be different, but I'd be surprised.

Tire rotation is needed on vehicles with drive axles in order to prevent uneven wear between the drive axle tires and the non-drive axle tires. On a 5er or TT, I don't think it's necessary because there are no drive axles and unless you only pull your trailer in NASCAR races, they'll scrub equally.

As for whether or not your tires can be mounted to turn both directions, I'd suggest that if a tire is designed to only turn one way, there will be some indication of rotation direction on the sidewall.
