You can flip them if they are a symetrical tire.We have done that for years for lapping & screwing around on.It sure helps to reduce the tire bills!I used to be able to buy the Hoosiers as take off from Grand Am cup teams and most of the time they only had 1 heat cycle on them and many times they still had the molding lines on them.When every bit of time counts for the Pro's,running the tires past one heat cycle is not an option on a race weekend.Lapping is another story however.
