    Quick question

    This isnt worth making a thread but what ever. I just got a fly Ruben 20X2.0 for my back tire. Which way do i put the tire on? Is the tread always supposed to be pointing towards the front of the bike? I know, stupid question, but better to find out now instead of wearing my tread down in a week.

    Look really carefully all around the side walls on both sides of the tyre. If there's an arrow printed somewhere or some other indication of direction, then that's the way they're "supposed" to go. If there isn't, chuck them on whichever way you feel like. At the end of the day it's mostly aesthetic for bike tyres anyway; you're never gonna hydroplane at bicycle speeds.

    i have one tire on the correct way, and the other on backwards. it doesnt matter what way theyre pointing. just as long as they roll, youre doin it right.

    Just put the treads forward on the wheel. I run with my knobbies backwards sometimes. It kind of messes with the tire life.
