Tires – Directional Arrows?
Saturday I took my wheels in to the local KTM dealer to have him mount new tires. He mounts them for $25 when you buy them from the internet. I got 15,000k out of the Avon Azaros so I was ready. I bought a set of Michelin Pilot Roads for the 919.
I picked the newly mounted wheels up later on Saturday and took them home to install. I always look to see if the directional arrow on the wheel matches with the one on the tire, but should have done this before I left the dealer! The front doesn't! Now I have to take it back after work and "make" them do it while I wait (I'm not driving 10 miles through traffic to pick it up again).
How important is mounting the tire so the directional arrows match up with the wheel? Tire life, traction, "danger!", etc.
