Darkside rear tire and reverse front tire

Post  handyhoward on Tue Jul 26, 2011 12:18 pm

I do not have any qualms about riding a quality CT on the rear of my bike... does it have to be a radial?

Some have mentioned mounting rear tires on the front end backwards... do they have to be radials as well?

I dont know why it would have to be radials but don't know why anyone would pick bias over radial as the radials have better handling,better traction and better ride than any bias ply that I have ever owned Question Question hmmm . As far as the reverse dirrection goes that is still being debated depends on what you think I guess. Shrug Shrug

As far as I know it is also ok to mix and match on a bike. But like Larry said, radials are better.
Forward and backwards mounting of a rear tire on the front seem to be working. Mine was designed to work on the front or the rear, so is mounted forwards.
