why rotate tires
Tire rotation is necessary becausefront tires wear more quickly on the shoulders(where the tread and sidewall meet) in day-to-day driving. This is primarily due to the fact that cornering is much harder on front tires than rear tires. Also, front-wheel drive vehicles put even more force on the front tires, accelerating wear even more.

The mechanic should be commended for measuring the tread wear at its worst points and advising you of a safety issue. Your thinking of replacing the tires and getting an alignment at the same time is the proper route to take. I was looking to rotate the front tires to the back until we can afford to replace the tires (will be very soon).
