    Maxxis High Roller - rear mounting question

    Running Maxxis High Roller UST (26x2.35) on my 575. Should the rear be mounted in the direction of the arrow, or backwards? One way would give better braking traction, the other better climbing traction.

    Wondering if mounting backwards would give extra rolling resistance due to the center ramped knobs being backwards... ???

    Climbing traction is mostly about getting enough weight over the rear tire. That tire will roll very slowly mounted backwards.

    I tried this in the past and would not recommend it. The arrows are there for a good reason IMHO. Give it a go if your keen but be prepared to swap it again
