    I use the maxxis hansventure as a front tire on my heavy trail bike, works fine with the top of the Y pattern hitting the ground first, other way round the tire seemed to want to drift in the turns. That tire is really fine when you start to lean it over. It has the DH casting so its very heavy but rolls really nice and can be run down to the high teems in pressure with very little squirm. Not familiar with the IRC tire, have fun!

    Looking down from the bike yes the Y should be like the letter, when it rotates around it will be upside down when it meets the dirt. Have fun!
