ESP Not the end of the world but you should have all tires facing directionally correct.

BU_Jeep Yes, they have a Rotation arrow on the sidewall.

chuckr You don't have to take MTR's off the rim and flip them. They're assymmetric but not directional. They have an outboard side of the tire, but once mounted correctly on the rim, they're always outboard.
OP, does it say on the tire that it must rotate in this direction or are you just looking at tread pattern?

Riccochet My MTR's are somewhat directional. I'll be damned if I'm taking them to a shop every 4-5k to be remounted and balanced for a rotation.

Directional All-Terrain Tires

Ok... so I have Pro Comp Xtreme A/T's. I did a 5-tire rotation using the diagram that is well distributed on this forum. I just noticed that these tires are directional. After the 5-tire rotation, fronts are correct, backs are wrong direction. Been running them like this for about 4,000 miles. Is there a 5-tire rotation plan for directional tires?

Or does it even matter? I've read a couple forums that said the directional tread on all terrain tires is mainly for snow/mud/off-road/etc traction. As a daily driver on pavement, it doesn't really matter?

Should I stick with the 5-tire plan that I've already started, or get them back to the proper direction?
