The bars on a tractor type tread are only aimed the way they are for their ability to clear themselves of mud/dirt on their next pass beneath the tractor/implement. A bar running straight across might give better traction but only if it is clear/open the next time around. Unfortunately a straight across lug would still be full of mud/dirt the second time around and wouldn't grab a full load next time , cutting traction. That's why theoretically a 23 degree bar will pull better than a 45 degree will and because of higher tech casings and compounds they have been successfull in getting a 23 degree to properly clear itself which is why they are the norm now. SO to answer your question , yes mount the grip tire backwards to what it would be on a "drive" situation (tractor) but it is because it will not clear itself if mounted the "tractor" way. Hense less traction.
