oppposite corners front to opposing back... take your pick and rotate the spare into the mix... typically one of the new fronts... but south of the equator the rotation should be clockwise!

If you do not have directional treads you might try taking a reading of the tread height on each of your tires and moving the best tire to the location showing the worst tread wear. I rotate all 5 of mine in this manner. They all wear down at the same time by doing this, allowing me to change tires altogether when the time comes. I do mostly highway driving and according to my girlfriend drive too fast around curves. If you check the treads, this results in outside tread loss which reduces the cornering ability. To counter this, when it becomes noticeable I turn the tires around putting the best tread on the outside. Hope this helps.

Drive wheels directly to the front or rear. Idle wheels crossed to the front or rear. This way, eventually all tires will hit all the corners.
