    Has anyone tried flipping a Rival after wearing down the outside shoulder. On the larger tires the inside tread blocks are pretty large. Doesn't look like there would be much of a lose in performance.

    I read this is okay to do after the tread is well worn down. Like 3-4/32". The body of the carcass is the same on both sides.

    Reports are that the carcass and compound are the same. I've noticed no difference with several pairs flipped. You can probably expect a little worse rain grip due to tread pattern though.
