Can I use a front tire (NR77U) in the rear on qt50?

I ordered the party pack from treat land for my qt50 , but came with two front tires (NR77U) the tire says to only use on the front on the tire. Can I use it in the rear? Did they make a mistake or is this normal?

It's says "front" in an arrow for direction. Not that it's a front tire.

Both tires had these front stickers as well

The rear version of that tire is too wide for the Qt50 so that’s your only option. You can use it on the rear no problem. I don’t see any difference in the tread between front and rear and on a stock qt you will going less than 1/3 of that tire’s speed rating. (edited)

Thank you Jack, that makes a lot of sense

That tire is A huge improvement over 30+ year old stock tires. You’ll need to adjust your front fender stays.

Motorcycle tires are indeed manufactured for front and rear fitment - it says front for a reason, the arrow is for direction obviously.

On the QT you’ll like never notice any change. Tire manufacturers develop the front tread to create a wake for the rear wheel when in loose terrain or in the wet. In the dry they are round rubber and you’ll not exceed weight/speed rating on a QT

Some tires like Avon roadriders come in a F/R design so it can be used on either, but it’s a fact most motorcycle tires are labeled front/rear for a very good reason
