Not in 30 years. A rule of thumb is cross the drive tires. So in a rear-wheel drive the lt ft becomes lt rr. Rt ft is rt rr. Lt rr is rt ft and rt rr is now lt ft. If you have a directional tire it just goes ft to back.

From the manual of a 98:
What he said. Of note, that is exactly the same picture it has been since the 60's.

I followed the manual once & crossed them over, 2 months later had plies seperating. Have only rotated front to back since then and never had any issues

Same exact scenario as you, twice. Front to rear only for me. I have directional wheels anyway. As long as I remember to rotate I get decent mileage out of them. I know they say cross em but I've not had good experience with it. Problems every time.
