Don't put a worn rear tyre on the front to try and even out the wear- you need the extra grip on the front wheel. Simply wait until the rear tyre wears out, then, if the front tyre is still good, move the front tyre to the back and put a new one on the front wheel. You'll get the same tyre life as rotating both tyres, but without having to put a worn out tyre on the front. If they're both knackered, obviously replace both.
