Do the front tires ware down faster then the rears?

I just got my first super duty and it has 285 toyo A/T's on it.

The fronts are like new but the rears are about half tread..
Having just got the truck I don't know if the PO just put the worn tires in the rear or if he never rotated them...

So should I put the fronts in he rear or leave em?

Some say the rears ware out faster cus of the power..others say the fronts cus the weight of the motor and they do the turning.

Are the worn ones cupped or really rounded? Thats a give away they were on the front. If they were on the back they should look lie a very flat even tread.
Also being out of alignment can destroy tires faster than one may think.

they don't have to spin and smoke like crazy... just applying the torque will scrub rubber off

Hauling heavy loads regularly will wear them out faster too.

My rears wear visibly compared to the fronts between the beginning and the end of a 4-5,000 round trip towing the 8,5000lb airstream. I have LTX's. This truck is tow-only, I almost never drive it for other purposes. When the rears are worn more than the fronts, .I swap them front/rear. Looks like they're going to last about 40-45K miles.
