The point being ?
I niticed no difference in traction running them either way, the tread is a lot better if you do work them both ways though.

I'm back to running a TKC80 on the front. Still have the tractionator on the rear. They seem to work well together - no weaving on the highway and hook up good on the dirt. The TKC80 front is nowhere near as robust as the tractionator front though, but I'm happy to stick with this combo for now, because I do like the tractionator rear. However, I am going to give the Anakee Wilds a go next change. I can always go back to what I am running now if the Anakees don't suit.

In the vlogger's case he did not ask for any compensation or replacement because he said they continued to work well enough and lasted long enough.
Show me a knobby tyre that doesnt cup, every knobby tyre does it, the bigger the knobs the heaver the cupping
