rotating tubeless tyres

I know with clinchers when the rear tyre is worn you replace it with the front one and put a new one on the front but is it the same with tubeless? I've heard that the beads on tubeless stretch on the rim so re-mounting the front on the back could pose sealing problems. Is it better just to replace them separately rather than rotating front to back?

    That's my experience. Fit and leave is the advice with tubeless.

    Can't say I've ever swapped over tyres to get even wear. Personally I just replace mine when worn out whether tubeless or not.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Same here. If the front is worn out replace it. If the rear is worn out, replace it.
    I ride a bike. Doesn't make me green or a tree hugger. I drive a car too.
