I tried to find the answer in the search...BUUUUUUUT,,,,,Since a friend and i are thinking about installing a 160 metz. front tire.....We were wondering why do the tire have to be mounted in the reverse rotation????

It has to do with the internal construction of the tire. It is a rear tire and is therefore designed to handle the stress under acceleration. The front exerts more stress onto a tire during braking, hence turn a rear tire around when running on the front.

THANKS,,,For the info..
I thought it had something to do with the construction of the tire and the way it handles a load wile under braking...
