This question already has an answer here:

If one foot's cleat wears quicker than the other due to riding style, is it a good idea to switch them after a certain time to extend the lifetime of the pair?

What style of cleats are they? –  alex Jun 14 '13 at 1:05

@zenbike I was just trying to separate out different parts of the same problem. That way if anyone else is looking for a similar query online they will find it here. –  Jean-Bernard Pellerin Jun 15 '13 at 7:09

I see from your other question that they're Look Keos.

As they're plastic, they're going to ware quicker than a metal cleat, and yes, you could swap them around.

However, I think a better strategy might well be to replace them one at a time as they wear out.

Plastic stuff doesn't really like being repeatably removed and reattached in most situations and you need to keep them in the correct positions, etc. etc.

Yep, I replace my right Look Keo cleat about twice as often as the left. Swapping around sounds like too much trouble for little gain. –  Johnny Jun 14 '13 at 1:20
