Flipping tires around

I have 35"s on stock Rubi wheels with the white lettering out.I want to flip white lettering in.Question is, can I mark the tire and wheel,flip it around,and be somewhat back in balance? I would plan on rebalancing,but if Iwould have no vibration i would leave it.Has anyone ever done this?

I'm no expert, but that doesn't sound like a good idea. I would suggest having it done by a pro shop that has a balancer. Tires are too expensive to take a chance.

Unless you have a tire machine you are going to have to have a shop do the work and no shop would do it without rebalancing them. Besides a 35" tire is huge so you wouldnt want to risk it being out of balance....it could beat you to death.

I have the machine,I just wondered if anybody has had any success at this.Technically if you were to mark them properly,then they would be in the same place on the wheel just turning in the opposite direction.Just wanted a little feedback before I tried it.If it dont work I will get a balance done close by.
