I put the tire on the wrong way on my front rim so I just turned the wheel around the other way so the tire is facing correctly is this ok since both sides of the front hub are the same?

It doesnt matter. Put it the right way while you are at it.

Well everyone is saying its fine to just turn the wheel around cause both sides of the front hub are the same.

I always put my front wheel in the forks then hold it in there while I flip it over then I Leen over the bars to tighten it so there is no chance of it moving side to side, this is usually an issue with forks that have been through allot

I always make sure my hub logo is facing towards me and the direction tread on my tire is facing away from me.
