Rotation direction front tyre BT-39

Post by Luciano »

Hi.
In the attached image that is from my front wheel. There are a arrow like symbol (see image). But it is confusing because the text says "Front use only" and underneath the text it looks like an arrow. I have seen arrows on other tyres but with the text "Direction" and that is rather clear of what the intention is.

Now is the problem that the arrow is gowning in the wrong direction (backwards) when the bike is gowning forward.

Is it a direction arrow? (Then the tyre needs to be turned around on the rim? BT-39)
Best regards, Luciano.

Yep, I'd say that's the direction arrow.

I'd guess that when looking at the tyre from sitting on the bike, to "pointed" part of the tread should point forward.

Hope that makes sense.?
If it ain't broke, fix it 'til it is.
