Radials will disintegrate if made to roll in the opposite direction. Only way to rotate all tires is to break them down, not because the wheels won't fit but because radials have to roll in same direction.
If you have arrows on your tires indicating they are unidirectional then you are correct.
If they are multi directional tires which most radials today are, you can can put them in on any position on your DRW.
Costco balances and rotates all of my Michelin tires on my DRW truck yearly and they are doing great.
