Then that would make the snare and kick out of phase with the oh's (if they were inphase before you flipped). So an alternate suggestion would be to try flipping the phase on each tom mic. Listen while the overheads are playing. Solo the oh's and a tom mic and try it. See which way has more bottom end on your toms. Then flip to mono and make sure nothing is cancelling out.

Sure, get your toms sounding halfway how you want them in solo if that makes you feel comfortable (such as reducing the unwanted flab, boxiness and mud),but then un-solo those suckers and tweak with eq until you get them heard a little better through the mix. If your toms seem to be at a reasonably even volume as the rest of the kit, but some strokes just aren't cutting through as much, a compressor (or limiter if you want them all the exact same volume and smashed) can help there.
