Always run tires in the direction that the arrow on the sidewall indicates. Running a tire backwards may gain traction when pedaling, but often it greatly sacrifices braking and cornering performance. There is no ONE tire.
Can you put a bike wheel on the wrong way?

What happens if you put a motorcycle tire on backwards?
One of the more critical marks on a motorcycle tire is the rotation arrow, or arrows. Today’s specialized tires generally have a tread pattern that must go in only one direction.

Does rim width matter for tires?
The width of the rim will influence the width of the tire. A tire mounted on a narrow rim would be “narrower” than if the same size tire was mounted on a wide rim. The industry rule of thumb is that for every 1/2″ change in rim width, the tire’s section width will correspondingly change by approximately 2/10″.
