Front Tire Tread

Recommended Posts

Guest unknown
Pics? I had the same issue when I took my rims of have a set of Q3's mounted up. if the bike is traveling that way -> you want the 'v's of tread to be upside down for the rear and right side up for the front.

There is an arrow showing the direction of rotation on the side of the tires (at least there is on the Bridgestones. I assume there is on the Michelins too).

Rear is optimised for traction front for braking.
And yes the front always looks wrong to me but it's not.

Yes, there is.On the Michelins, it's a small arrow actually molded into the tread rubber just to the side of the chicken strips (edges of the tire tread).

The small arrow is there as YZEtc stated above, it's A small raised emblem there in the Michelins, I hand mounted a set on my last CBR and looked carefully for the arrow when installing onto rims. 
Beemer, go check and let us know if in fact there mounted correctly.
