Tire rotation

Hey guys just thought I should double check before I went ahead and rotated my tires. Front to back should be fine right? no criss-crossing or anything? Thanks.

I always moved the fronts straight back and crossed the back 2 to the front but that's how my grandpa taught me to do it. Don't know if that's the "correct" way to do it or not

Front to back is fine. No need to criss cross them no more unless your running bias-ply which I doubt you are.
