Did you know there are 3 different types of tyre tread patterns.
Directional meaning they can only travel in one direction (so once they are fitted if they need rotating they must either stay on the same side of the vehicle or be turned on the rim)
Asymmetrical meaning they have an inside and an outside (this is marked on the tyre), so they must only be fitted one way on the rim but they can be fitted anywhere on the vehicle and rotated to any position.
Lastly non directional, these can be fitted either way on the rim and any where on the vehicle. These can be helpful if you have trouble with your wheel alignment and tyres scrubbing as if you catch them in time you can flip the tyre on the rim before it becomes unroadworthy.
