Rotating tires mounted on fanblades?

I just got a set of fanblades and when I put them on my car, I realized they are all labeled RH, RR, LH, LR...

So what should I do when it's time to rotate them? Do you guys have any method that you follow for directional wheels so they don't get all mis-matched? (i.e. RH and LH on same side)

When it comes to directional tires or wheels i just go front to back-back to front.

Changing sides was the norm when all tires were bias-ply. The pattern was actually kind of a bow-tie that included the spare (if full-sized). This changed when radials started coming out in the 70s.

Radial tires are rotated front-back on the same side. The directional wheels just make it obvious when this is not followed.

Bias-ply was king in them thar days.
