I wouldn't flip them back and forth. You IMO actually wear them out quicker. The directional tires are because of the tread pattern. But radial tires are somewhat directional too. The metal braided sidewalks will wear out quicker and will be weaker on the road/trails and you will be riding on a blowout waiting to happen.
Direction of travel ------> metal braid actually bends like this " ) " and you drive for 3-4000 miles and they are formed like this.
Then you change the direction of travel <-------- the metal braid actually bends like this " S " after driving for 3-4000 miles and everyone knows when u start bending pliable metal back and forth it breaks.
(Not the best of descriptions because you can't draw on here. Hope it makes sense)
