Goodyear MT/R + Kevlar -- Directional, NO???

Okay, I've had it. I have to ask what would normally seem very obvious, but is not consistent on all of the pic's of the new MT/Rs on rigs.

Are these directional??? I believe the answer is yes, and if so, then if you're looking at the front of the rig, the "arrow" should be pointing down on both of the tires. This would make mounting a spare a guess, because if you there are directional, you'd have to guess which tire you'll blow or unseat when aired down based on driving tendencies.

People have the damn things on in every direction! Someone let me know, because this small detail is killing me!!!

Humbly and quietly yours,

RC

A lot of chit coming...

No you can still do a normal rotation. They will always have the same tread footprint in any position.

Ah- correct.

Not sure what I was thinking about the rotation. I think cruzcode got me all confused.

Discount Tire mounted them- and I pretty much assumed the thicker part was supposed to go towards the inside since that's what seemed right and was what I had seen previously.

I did mount them later that night.....in the garage....with the door shut.....but that's a different story entirely!
