    interestingly, the rear is mounted with chevron pattern pointing forward and the front is mounted with chevron pattern pointing backward as per the direction on the tire. i was wondering if this was as error but revzilla has a video on rotation pattern that explains why this is so.

    I think that is intentional....
    I was told that since the rear tire drives the bike / (is pushing on the road)
    and the front tire is driven by the bike / (is being PUSHed BY the road) ... that they need to be opposite of each other............

    I never noticed it before so I was surprised. Looks like the anakee 3 was mounted the same way with rear treads pointing forward and the front treads pointing backwards

    It’s also acceleration force vs braking force right? The main effort needed of each tyre is In opposite directions.
