So I took my wheels in , had new tires put on and I put the wheels back on the bike in a rush, so something is wrong here right? I need to have the arrow on the rim or the arrow of the tire at the bottom towards the ground facing forward, right. It looks like I have both of them wrong. Help me understand this no brainer. The rear wheel has to stay as is, now that I look at it cause it cant be turned around do to the chain side and brake side, its tread is correct I believe...?

You are fine, don't worry about it. Both are mounted correctly. Just make sure you followed the proper alignment procedure outlined in the manual when installing the front wheel on the forks.

The arrows show the direction of rotation when the bike is moving forward. Photos look like you are good to go.

Can't tell on your first pic which side of the bike you were on when taking the pic, but the rear looks fine.

If you're going by the tread pattern, then yes, it looks like the front tire is backwards.

Figured it out. It was correct. Tried it as this picture shows and the arrow goes opposite of direction of travel.

uh, so that means it's on backwards...

Edit: Question, is the above pic your bike? If so, then it's backwards,

Backwards and you're missing a bolt for your fender.

Yep, arrow should point in the direction the tire turns when the bike is moving foward. Wheel arrow, if it has one, should be the same as the tire. Also, dot (yellow?) should line up with air valve.

Easiest way to look at it is that all arrows should be clockwise direction from right side of bike.

Sharpied arrow on rotors are much easier to see when installing wheel.

If you use Dynabeads, you can ignore this
