Align it with the valve stem👍
Should be an arrow on the sidewall showing direction of rotation.How do I find what side is forward on the tire ?
Yes. And pattern is kinda telling.. it only make sense in one direction.Should be an arrow on the sidewall showing direction of rotation.
I used to do that out of habit. Until I realized my wheels only can go on the bike one way.Front tire tread pattern in most instances will look backwards when mounted properly. I always sharpie marker and arrow on the brake dics before I remove the old tire. Then match the directional arrow to the arrow on the disc. It gets easy to get wheel direction after you flip the wheel over a time or two on the tire machine,
Yep, but you can install the tire either way. Sure, does suck when go through the process of mounting a new tire then put the wheel back on the bike and realize the tires is on backwards. Been there done that.I used to do that out of habit. Until I realized my wheels only can go on the bike one way.
Yall are free ta dismiss my following remarks if ya want...but....Align it with the valve stem👍
Probably all of the above. I lost my real 10mm socket while fixing wife's car. I stupidly picked a socket from a pile of old sockets..which held the bolt... did not even check the size and use impact wrench.. 3 bolts came off.... hmm.. I am not sure I might have ran impact in tight direction.Tighten the other bolt slightly to hopefully take a bit of pressure off the rounded fastener. Then try your screwdriver again. I highly doubt the amount of over torque caused the fastener to round. as these do not take a lot of torque before you something bad with the aluminum happens. Are you sure you had the right socket? Was the socket worn or all gunked up?
Marking the disc helps to remind you which direction to mount the tire. See my post above.If my wheel only goes on one way, I don’t need to mark a disc.
