If you check your car tires, you'll see the same thing. It's called directional tread. It is designed to rotate in one direction for optimum performance and tread life. I think it's overkill for a bike tire, but I do it anyway. I don't want to find out that huge chunks of tread will start flying off like an overheated retread tire if I get it wrong. :-)
