There's common sense, then there's actual logic.

My Micra currently has 4/32 on the rear and 7/32 on the front (because I missed a rotation and the factory tires are crap. If I was to do it "properly", I would have the thin tires be legally bald in another 8000km. Or, I can (did) rotate them, so in another 16000km they will all go bare at the same time. That's, a lot cheaper way to do it.
(Fronts wore 65% while rear wore 35%. By my math, I rotated them at exactly their half life. Now In another 16,000km, Both fronts and rear will hit 0% within the same month.
