In my previous post I mentioned a way to get the ticks oriented correctly. Here is the code:

R[ang_] := 3*(0.25 + 0.75*Cos[ang + 0.2])

Rotate[PolarPlot[Abs[R[ang]], {ang, 0, 2*Pi}, PolarGridLines -> Automatic,
PolarAxes -> Automatic, PolarTicks ->
{Table[{a*Degree, Rotate[a*Degree, -90*Degree]}, {a, 0, 360 - 15, 15}],
Automatic}], 90*Degree]
