Carbide tooth blades are usually put on bandsaws with flat tires. They are adjusted so the teeth are free of the band towards the front. That way they the teeth will not damage the tires.
The deepest part of the gullet should be in the center of the tire.

Carter has a great youtube video on how to adjust bandsaws and bandsaw tires. They really know their stuff when it comes to bandsaws.
