How thats? The Goodyears arent directional....

*edit* nevermind, Josh explained to me how those tires have different sidewalls, despite not being a directional tread. Interesting. Now I'm wondering WTF Goodyear was thinking when they decided to do that. Strange.

Looks good, how do you know they are on backwards? Are they directional? if they are, the left side will be different than the right side, if both sides were put on the same exact way one side would be running backwards.

Is there an arrow on them with Rotation written by it? You should have 2 running clockwise and 2 running counterclockwise if they are directional

I know what you are saying, and I would want them all to look the same as well.

there is a ribbed side with small writing, and a smooth side with large writing. i personally liked the smooth side better.

i dunno if they're directional or not but as long as i get the lettering matching and they last however long tires are supposed to last then i'm happy :D

I looked close at the tread, and I can see how it's sort of a mirror image of the other side, so doesn't matter which way they run .. like Josh said, put the smooth side out .. I had some tires with the ribbed side/writting out and when you run a cloth along it it would catch the cloth.

YAY MEATS!!!!!! I couldn't have lived without meats on my old truck. On my old truck i didnt even know the tires had 2 sides, i had the ribbed side and was pissed when i found out one side was smooth. Tire shine didn't shine on the ribbed side. Burtle Flipple
