My opinion, based on experience and observation, is that tires on the front will wear on the edges due to turning the car, leaving them rounded, and that rear tires will wear flat across, leaving a worn area in the center of the tread. Rotating them gives the tires a chance to even out the wear patterns.

If your tires are wearing on the outside or inside then you are not setting them at the corect air pressure. read the label either under the hood or on drivers door it will tell you the correct pressure for front and rear. I use this and my tires always run even across the tread. i never rotate and my tires all wear even enough that I can replace all four at the sametime. except on front drive cars where the rear are like a trailer tire and never wear. on these rotate fon to rear at about half the wear down on the front tires. Now don"t take this for GOSPLE as some cars are just fifferent. also keep a check on front end alinement as this will cause uneven wear on the inside or outside of the front tires. there are other reason such as uneven trailing arms on older Chevies friend of mine had one of those it wore out rear tires right and left untill he had it fixed.
