I know that, correctly, all five tyres should be rotated around the car at regular intervals to maintain even wear and hence handling, but in common with probably 99.9% of drivers, my tyres stay in the same place until the front ones wear down. This has the advantage that I'm not hit with the cost of replacing five tyres all in one go. I've always been of the belief that when you replace a pair of tyres, the new ones go on the front, the reasoning being that the grip of the new tyres improves braking and steering. Then I found this: http://www.etyres.co.uk/flashmovies/new-tyres-rear-etyres.htm I can see their point, though I'm still loathe to sacrifice my braking (60%+ on the front wheels) and dry-surface handling for improved wet-surface handling.
