Kenda Kwick Cross tires

Maybe this is a silly question but I am not positive about the drive arrow on the tire. Does this tire run one on the front and another on the back? Or do they run the same way?

I've got them both pointing the same way. Works fine for me, it's how I recieved them and what the arrows on the sidewall say to do.

Yeah, I mounted one for the first time while looking at the tread the other day, then noticed the arrow and realized I had it on backwards. Weird.

Ran them both as directed last weekend with no complaints from the friend on the bike.

No harm in trying the rear backwards though if you want to see how it goes, I remember running the rear on my MTB backwards in 1995/6 or so (Panaracer Smoke if you really must know) and liking it.

I have been running my front backwards, I was thinking the drive indicated direction of the rear wheel but wasn't sure. So the arrow indicates directions of both wheels, don't know why they just didn't put rotation with an arrow instead of drive.
