There have been a couple of recent discussions of rotating tire placement. Without rehashing them, but to address one specific point...

The only reason that many cars follow a tire rotation pattern which keeps a given tire on the same side of the vehicle is that they have tires with a directional tread pattern. The "vee" pattern is obvious in the tread, and the sidewall has an arrow marking which indicates the correct direction of rotation. "Trailer tires" (ST tires such as the Carlisles used by Escape) do not have a directional tread pattern, so this doesn't apply.
