Wanna look like a pro brah?

New treads?
First make sure you’ve got that tire headed in the right direction for your wheel.  Most tires will have some sort of rotational indicator arrow somewhere on the side wall.

Once you’ve got that direction nailed down, make sure to line the valve stem up with the manufacturers logo. Not only does it look totally pro, but you’ll be able to quickly find that valve stem when you need to fill up!
