Super swamper boggers direction?

I feel very dumb but i got some used boggers from a buddy and had them mounted when i got my truck back i noticed that it did a weird hop and i was looking at the tires and the drivers front and pass rear are going one way and the opposite tread was pointing the other way. Which direction should all of the tread be going?

The center of the tread should point forward on the top of the tire.

A lot of people run them backwards though, Ive heard they're quieter on the street that way.

Some run the fronts in one direction and the rears in the opposite. I guess that way you will have the same traction in forward as you do in reverse.

I got mine with roughly 90% tread for 600 bucks. They are 38.5/15.00/r15. So far no complaints.

Is it really any difference in traction? While they are certainly directional enough that anyone would notice the two sides being mounted differently, does it make a significant difference in traction? I can't imagine that little bend in the tip would have a big effect...

Your passenger side front is the correct direction.
