No, I thought both the old and new tires were the same. I mounted mine in the direction of the arrow. It got me through Hurricane Bill, well the wind and the rain anyway and the tire never seemed to let go. I've heard people say they have those exact results from mounting it backwards. Right on the sidewall of that tire, it says for rear use only. It says that on both sides. So, to sum things up, there is no correct way to put a tire in the wrong location.

I have worn out several of those, tried both ways. I can honestly say it doesn't make any difference.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.
