I just purchased a pair of Hutchinson Alligator Gold for my Raleigh M800, and even though they are not front/rear specific, they have arrows pointing in opposite rotating directions for front or rear. The rear tire mounted this way looks "conventionally correct" (tread pointing forward), but the front tire would look as though it was backwards.
At my local bike shop, they mounted them both in the same direction (tread pointing forward).
What effect would I get by mounting the front tire in the direction that Hutchinson recommends, and what effect would I get if I mount it in the direction that looks "logical".
What do you recommend?
