tire change

cold rainy day here in upstate NY so thought i would change my tires on the wing, got it on the lift got the 5 tools out to remove the front wheel, first the right caliper check pads, good the left caliper check pads, not so good, yep need brakes change about 30k ago with oem guess i'll install oem back on. question on the Michelin, which way ? if i keep the sips the way they are on the front tire now, i would have to reverse the tire.

I thought you already asked that question.

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.

If you have already decided how you are mounting it, then why want other opinions...??

Maybe someone has mounted this tire both ways at one time and one way was better then the other but usually one mounts one way and another mounts another way

Just like the brake pads I’m getting I like the ones I use but I have looked at others to see what others think, I like oem’s but I was thinking of getting the sintered pads ordered the oem’s but curious on what others think of the sintered ones , info man info I gather so much info on things some times I do change my mind because a lot of people have tried them and let others know about it. Like reviews.

Yes I have, said so in your other thread. Doesn't seem to matter, it cups in either direction.

Seemed to be fine with water either direction.
