I have noticed that some people have tried running ag tires on garden tractors mounted backwards and i was just wondering why some people do this? does it increase traction or is it just a preference?

The lugs/bars are suppose to point forward for best traction....some ppl may not know it, but that's all i know...

On the front or back? On the front it will help with steering. On the back it won't, unless of course, you back up all the time. :rolling:

It might depend on the track surface?? On a loose track conventional mounting would be best.

But on pavement or packed clay reversed might be better?

Sometimes on a loader tractor with 4wd they may mount the fronts backwards to help when backing out of a pile with a bucket full.
