It depends on what kind of vehical and tires you have. If you have directional tires they need to be rotated front to back on the same side of the car. 4x4 recomends to cross rotate like the letter x lr to rf/rr to lf etc. It is also important to keep your tires balanced/recomend getting that done on a high speed spin ballancer. That will keep it both in Static and Dynamic(side to side&up and down)balance. Prices differ between places, at sams club it will cost you aprox. $15. Failure to rotate the tires will result in the tires cupping, causing undesirable ride, leading to premature suspension wear.

Also keep in mind if you have a high performance car the rear or front tires may be wider than the others in which case no rotation is needed.

I find that diagrams are often one of the best ways to show the various trie rotation patterns. There is some great info in the link below
