A steering axle is a steering axle no matter whether it is on a motor grader or an Ag tractor or a garden tractor. It's purpose is to make the machine turn in the direction the Operator points it in.
The tires are expected to bite into the surface and turn the tractor with no slippage. Running Ag bar tread tires backward on steering axles that are not powered is a long established fact. No reputable tire company would mount them any other way.
If the front end of your tractor does not "push" when turning sharply in snow, then don't reverse them. If you find that it does push forward instead of turning immediately, then for all the effort it takes to swap them over, you just might want to give my suggestion a try.
Ask yourself this question. Can millions of users be wrong compared to one guy on this forum who claims to have experienced a different result?
