    Hep Shiggy, quick question about Bull Lock tire

    I received mine in 26x2.35 and installed on my rear wheel, but I'm not sure which way to run the tire for a rear setup. Since the tire has no marking for rotation direction, it's kind of confusing on the right side to use. Right now I have it mounted with the main thread pattern going forward, so I get a grippy braking, like for a front setup, but I was wondering if I should put it backward to get a dirt digging action instead ?

    Thanks !

    Your choice. Try it both ways, see which you prefer.

    I have answered this general direction question dozens of times. I usually run the "front" direction F&R.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Thanks, tried the "front" direction today and felt like I was missing something. I'll switch and see.

    Have a nice day
