Front tire mounted and installed rotating opposite of suggested direction
I am actually in Mexico and after a 3 weeks R&R, I just finished cleaning up and loading up the Dakar for the next step that will take me to Brownsville TX, about 1100 kms.
I just noticed that the front tire has been mounted and installed rotating opposite of suggested direction (as printed on tire.)
The tire is a TKC 80, 21" with somehere around 3000 kms on it since it was replaced!!
My question is; am I better off leaving the tire running opposite of suggested direction until I get to a proper dealer shop which I should find in Brownsville OR reversing it now and having the tire run in proper direction but risking the jobber shop in the area pinching the tube and bending the disc???
I read on another blog that the direction is just for the tread to dissapate rain properly and for noise control.
