Pirelli Tires

I mounted the Pirelli tires today! They look great! I’m very pleased with them and they fit the military theme perfectly!

Looks fantastic @Jaymz ! Question though. Is the front tire mounted the wrong direction? The "V" tread seems to be rolling toward the front on the rear wheel and toward the back on the front.

Each one matters.

I thought they were mounted wrong but that’s the correct pattern and mounting

The tread patterns on front and rear tires are sometimes different on directional sports tires. This is due to the different forces acting on the front tire vs the rear.

The tyres look great! Especially seeing them on a Bobber Black!
Please can I be cheeky and confirm the tyre sizes with you?
Cheers

Hi Ysoslo,

the tyres are mounted correctly!

The Pirelli tyre in this dimesion is a rear tyre, if you put it on the front, you need to mount it in the other direction than on the rear.

This is due to the work the tyre has to do, on the rear it should transfer acceleration forces, as front tyre it must transfer braking forces so the profil should be turned!

Cheers
