Hey guys, just got a new set of the michilen pilot powers installed on the bike and I'm a bit worried about the front tire. I think its on backwards. I looked at the side and the arrow is pointing the right way, but the tread pattern on it is freaking me out. Any chance some of you guys running the pilot powers can throw up a picture? Right now a normal rotation will take water from the outside and bring it in towards the middle..... every other tire i've ever seen, including the rear pilot power is the opposite and its just kinda freaking me out.

I just looked at mine, and the tread does give that impression. As long as your arrow is correct, don't sweat it. They work good on wet pavement even with that tread design.

Trust the arrow. You're fine buddy.

Your also looking at the front of the tire and not the back like the rear. I have always thought that too, but the arrow knows best

This has been asked before, and the tire is fine as is. You'd have to ask Michelin why the tread pattern is like that. As mentioned, just follow the arrow and life is good.
