Haro tyres fitted with labels on the right?..
« on: March 13, 2022, 11:05 AM »
I've fitted the Haro tyres with the labels showing on the chain wheel side ( see pic) the arrows are lined up for the left side.

I ignored the arrows as I wanted them on the right side, does it really matter?

Never cared about it in the mid eighties 😀

Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place and I don't care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. ......

I would say on a tyre like that with tight packed treads it would be fine. They don't look "seriously directional" to me.

On something like this?



It's a much bigger deal. Mostly because it is designed to bite better in the correct direction and offer less rolling resistance. Which all changes if you put it on backward.

I thought the same as you directional wise.  I will leave them like they are for the moment as I'm never going to be used.  Steve.

Many thanks for your info Damo, it's been bugging me, as I couldn't see what difference the arrows would have made.We rode them on ramps and ground in any direction in the 1980's ,  the arrows are just for show?  I might re align them in the future👊🏻

Like a lot of things, in practice it would be doubtful that you could tell the difference!!  :daumenhoch:

I am sure iirc that Ron Wilkerson ran his front tyre backwards in most of the pics i studied when i was building a rider rep a few years ago.......more aesthethically important than performance related  i would imagine.... :daumenhoch:

Yes, I'll change them over this week, labels to the left side👍👍👍

It is a convention that any stampings and labels on tyres and wheels are read from the driveside. However that direction arrow would drive me nuts!

Some tyres are pretty clever. No matter which way you mount them they are the same. Kinda bent my brain when fitting my TAs.
