inner rear dually tires?

Question, I have a 2019 KRDRW and I got the tires re-balanced, this am, all tires stayed in the same spot, the front tires have white walls to the outside as well as the outer rear tires. When we went to take the inner rear tire off the hub, both sides are blackwalls, on both inner rear tires. So I wont be able to properly rotate the tires on my truck as there is not a whitewall on one side of each of the inner rear tires. One would think with the money we spend on these trucks that you should be able to rotate and balance all 6 tires the correct way which is in a circle on each side. So does anyone else have this same problem? Shouldn't one side of the rear inner tires be a whitewall?

My DRW lariat came with the Alcoaís. 4 of them. The inners are ugly steel so no rotating them!

Suggest you call your dealership and ask. If that's the way Ford does it (2 blackwall and 4 whitewall) then the best you can do is rotate the 2 inner tires. At least the other 4 can be rotated front to back.

I love my DRW but rotating is a PITA with having to dismount the tires, etc. That's why I do it every 10k miles.

Update, the DRW Trucks come that way from the factory, the book for the truck shows to rotate the rear tires as a set from the right to the left then the lefts to the right. And just switch the fronts from side to side.
But I think that I will be doing this, the left rears going to the right rears, the right rears going to the fronts, the fronts going to the left rear. Any one have any other suggestions? I could also make circle on both sides of the truck with each three tires staying on there respective sides. Any thoughts on this?

I suspect that Ford shows swapping on the same axles (left to right and vice versa) so that you don't have to dismount the tires. Faster and cheaper for sure.

When I rotate and balance mine (now keep in mind that I have all black wall tires), I have all 6 dismounted and the rear outers go to the front. Then the rear inners go to rear outers. And finally the fronts become the rear inners. Basically after 3 rotations all tires have moved from inner to outer to front. I used to cross axle them (left to right and front to back but it became too much to keep track of - - lol). And as noted above, I only rotate/balance now every 10k miles because it's time consuming and costs me about $75 (tires are OE so the tire shop I use doesn't rotate/balance them for free like they do when you purchase the tires from them).
