This is a conversation I had on a Trike forum: What do you think?

I have been selling the following for both Harley and Suzuki C-50 Trike applications. Remember to mount it in REVERSE.

I can understand fitting a rear tyre on the front of a trike, But why mount it in reverse? The tread pattern would force water to the centre of the tyre in wet conditions, resulting in aquaplaning  New Front Tire 249703

Sim I am not sure about why. All the research I have done Thru different forums and Google searches say to run a rear tire in reverse to get proper water disbursement.  :what1:

Found this on a forum;

Compare the direction of the tread patterns of a front tire and a rear tire and you'll find that the tread patterns run opposite of each other. When a rear tire is used on the front, the tire needs to be reversed so that the tread pattern runs the correct direction, the same as a front tire would run, and whoever mounts it by the arrow mounts it backwards.

Tires Directional Arrows Explained By Avon Tyres
Published by Cyril Huze August 23rd, 2009 in Builders, Editorial and Wheels.
Before we can talk about directional arrows you must first understand a bit about tread patterns.
There are many different tread patterns but there is one main reason to have any tread and that
is to disperse water. (dust, dirt)
A tread pattern can be designed to disperse more water by making it rotate in only one direction.
Thus, the need for directional arrows. The arrow tells you which way to mount a tire for maximum
water dispersal. Another, less apparent reason for directional arrows is the tread splice.
What is a tread splice? When a tire is manufactured the tread portion of the tire starts out as
a long flat strip. This strip is wrapped around the tire and the two ends are cut on an angle
so one end overlaps the other rather than having square cut ends.
This overlapping point or splice offers a bigger surface area to bond together, rather than the
small surface area provided by square cut ends. (Imagine gluing your fingertips together, as
opposed to gluing along the entire length of your fingers laid on top of each other. Like an
angled splice, the overlapping fingers result in a much stronger bond).
To further ensure the strength of this bond along the tread splice the directional arrow will show
you which way to mount the tire so that when the rider is “on the gas”; the acceleration force on
the rear tire is pressing the splice together, rather than peeling it back.
As for braking, 80 % of the braking should take place in the front on most bikes. Therefore, the
front tread splice is run in the opposite direction than that of the rear, so when the rider is on
the brakes, he’s not peeling the tread splice back.
If you are using a tire that has a directional arrow for rear rotation only and for some reason you
want to put it on the front, make sure it is rotating in the opposite direction so you don’t
aggravate the tread splice.
