I'll typically try tires both ways to see if one way runs "straighter" than the other way. Some tires really pull to the side or are more draggy when run backwards while others are improved.

My own personal experience suggests that front tires tend to track better, and roll better than rear tires. I tend to run both front or rear tires in their intended direction of travel, and Front/Rear tires in the front configuration. but honestly the difference is usually pretty minimal.

If the tire is collapsing under load you probably want that to happen on acceleration rather than braking as you would be loosing stability, and stability while breaking is important...
