New tires; rear or front?

I changed the tires of my car recently and the guys doing it moved my old back tires to the front and put the new at the rear. Is that good practice? My colleagues were all shocked that this was done coz they all thought that good tiress should go to the front coz they get used up more quickly.

Yet, they r wrong. I can see their logic but on a safely point of view, manufacturers advise us to always put new tires at the rear. A small search on the Internet will reveal the reasons for this.
