They sent me a rear instead of a front 130/90/16 😠 Guess I'll mount it reverse direction. The sipe angles suggest that will channel water away from the middle and iirc rears are designed for drive torque fronts for braking.
Right, being in a hurry is a mistake. Luckily I had a spare rim with a metal stem to swap from.If you have rubber valve stems always replace them with every new tire. Best to just change to metal stems.
