This is one of those secret irritations I have with people who run the XC Masters in the front. They all run them BACKWARDS! The Maxxis Razr IIs are the same and they have the tread going in the reverse V orientation. So essentially, the opposite way everyone thinks. They were designed that way for better performance when your down in a rut in GNCC racing for instance.

I just purchased the front tires and if I put them on properly the tread will be going in different directions on each front tire. It’s as if there is a left and a right tire and they accidentally sent me 2 left tires. The tires are not perfectly round. There is a high side that goes toward the a arm and the other side is for the outside of the rim. Did I get a defective tire?

No, it’s just the way they package them. They will expand out to normal shape the next time you ride on a hot day. Just install them in the direction you’d like.
