Default Proline Edge 2.2 in Truck / Dirrectional?

Proline Edge 2.2inch truck Front, Does this tire Matter which side you put it on? As the ribs are different on one side of the tire compared to the other?


I will post a pic up soon if needed




Also hole shot rears are not directional are they?


Sorry Im a offroad newb

Damn do they put writing on both sides these days just to confuse people? Ones i've got only have it on one side. The side with the single edged ribs go to the inside.

Nah holeshots aren't directional.

It was my impression the tires could be mounted in either direction depending on how much steering you wanted. The single-ribs on the inside give more steering.

/// \/ \/ \---->outside. More aggressive steering

/ \/ \/ \\\---->outside. Less aggressive steering


It has become a preference thing. No right or wrong way.
