Just swap the front tires with the rears. Sometimes people change rear right with front left etc when doing Rotation.

Might go back to rear-cross after reading this article.

Honestly, I wish I knew the right answer.
I, too have always done front to rear and as I do my own work, it's certainly easier and better than doing nothing.
But now I'm rethinking this, too.
