Want more mud? Reverse the direction of your directional tires.

Looks fun. Where are you located?

Nice choice on tires. I'm also running the MT Baja Claw Radials. Love them.

Need More Mud!

Great pics but more mud is necessary for a Jeep to be happy and, if your Jeep ain't happy, nobody's happy!

For the most part, until it comes to mud/sand tires.

The tires are installed the right direction. You people are gonna get him killed. Flipping them will give you more traction during low speeds however they will become killers on rain especially on higher speeds. Having your tires hydroplaning because they are the wrong way is the easiest way to get into an accident during a rain.

x98Cobra...

Your tires are mounted in the correct direction, for safe street driving and per the manufacturer. My comment about reversing the direction only applies to off-road use. Many people reverse the direction as they claim it really helps with traction in the rocks, sand and mud. It will, of course, fling more mud all over the place.

As Tripple88 said, keep the tires as you have them for safe street driving. Only flip them around when going off road, if it is worth it to you.

Just something else to think about, having a directional tire means your spare is only good for one side of your vehicle. Might want to look for a same size uni-directional tire for your spare if you do long road trips.

Happy wheeling....

as for directional tires, there's an arrow on the sidewall that will point to the front when it's installed properly.

as for your Cobra... it doesn't have a frame, so you didn't bend it.

Cobra's are unibody - meaning it's a mix of frame and chassis. There's a front subframe and a rear sub frame... both are very bendable.

Not a fram in the sense of "full frame" like is on our Jeeps.
