id say mount them as the bottom pic shows.........my 2 cents is that when the tired spins the \_-_-_/ would grip better than /-----\? if thats hard to figure out then just mount them with the point of the middle groove facing you when your standing behind the bike. (bottom pic)

Wow. A rear wheel like that needs direction arrows.
I agree with the above for a startup traction perspective, but I wouldn't doubt if the factory recommends the other way. You need only look at the way the stock Dunlops were mounted were their arrow type pattern, but the center lugs' shape do seem to conflict with the outer lugs' pattern :confused:
What kind are those?

The top direction(viewed like your behind the quad) will give you better control in the corners, the bottom direction will give you more forward bite. You choose which is more important.

Well I got the tires mounted but have not had a chance to ride on them yet. Out of curiosity I weighed these and they are 19.5 lbs. on my scales and the stock tire with lots of tread left weighed 13.5. Not sure how thats going to work out in the drags but I ride mostly trails anyway so no big deal. Check pics if you want.

You can run them either direction. If you have it so the cup is hitting the ground going forward then you are going to get mad traction and pick earth up and roost. If you go the directional way (so its angled in the way you are going) then you will see less traction and more handling.
This has been my experience with tires that are kind a like that. I have the Pure Sport "realtors" and run them the cup way.....works better in the mud/snow :thumbsup:
