Just rotate them like on a car. Just remember to criss-cross.

Be sure not to get any blinker fluid on them.

I'd recommend not doing so, if it didn't matter the tires wouldn't have directional arrows. I know for sure on the bridgestons you shouldn't, and I'm pretty possitive same goes for the rest.
