I had a '91 4x4 truck I drove for 17 years. I always put BFG A/T TA KO 30x9.50 15" tires on it. I ran 4 sets of these tires after the stock tires wore out. I put 249K on the truck.
The fourth set I never bothered to rotate - had the same good wear with them as the second and third set which I rotated 3 times over the life of the tire - say about every 12K miles. The first set, I rotated every 8K and they wore out slightly faster.
I believe if they stay properly balanced and inflated, rotation is not necessary.
Had the same luck on a set of Toyo tires I ran on my '03 corolla. Put 65K on them and they had 1/2 of the tread left on them when I upgraded them to the next level of Toyo. I never rotated these either and didn't have any problems what so ever. Again, they stayed properly inflated and balanced.
