    Larry and Big Fat Larry: reverse tread?

    Looking at the Larry/bfl, it looks like the tread would be more aggressive on the rear if reversed. Anyone play with this?

    I run the Larry reversed in the winter as well as a few others on here. Fairly common practice I believe.

    Yep, I ran my rear Larry reversed (before switching to Nates) and it worked well.

    If by reversed you mean with the wide end of the arrows hitting the dirt first - that's how I've been running mine in the back. I believe it gives better drive traction that way. Likewise, running the front with the narrow end of the arrow may give slightly easier rolling, but I like the idea that that wide side of the arrow will give better braking.

    OTOH, these tires have such traction that it may not make a difference.
    This isn't a "you're doing it wrong" topic.
