Re: Front tire for 2007 trike
The whole front back thing is due to the stresses on the tire bead. A front tire has to account for hard braking only (force against the rotation arrow) and a rear tire has to account for hard acceleration only (force with the rotation arrow). So if you use a rear on the front it should be mounted so the force is against the rotation arrow. That means backwards.
A good front fit for an early bike will also fit a later bike, clearance wise.
