I have heard of running the fronts backwards part of the time to even wear if it is used for road travel a lot but haven't heard anything about the rear tires like that

Backwards is flotation and forwards is traction. Maybe they have soft spots that need to float over? Or other thought I'd getting ready to or just been hauled so reversed wheels to narrow up for that?  Rear wheel discs are in i see.

They may have flipped them around for width -narrower

Just a guess

That was my guess, for transport.,,, no pics of the other side, he may just have 2 right hand tires on there.. they are directional you know..?

interesting, i didnt realize outside of extra traction backing up, maybe doesnt tear up ground as much in the hay field turning ? 

 

Hay work was my guess.  Looks like he is in hay production/alfalfa seed production area.

Easy, farmer pulls up to aunt bee’s kitchen, steals opies apple pie and drives away, but, when Barney gets to the scene he looks at the tracks and says “ange the pie guy went thataway” not knowing the tires were on backwards, another fine job of police work by deputy fife.
