yes yes yes



what happens if you have 2 tires one direction and 2 the other ( saying left to right not front to back) you WILL get a pull or push......

all 4 tire arrows go the same direction giving the same amount of traction... if you dont the car will have more grip on 1 side of the car over the others...

mount all the same way.. what i have done is if you have to much traction flip both rear wheels the opposite direction.. you then dont have as much forward bite but the fronts will have the same... this is a tuning aid..

ok, got it now, all arrows on sides of tires go forward, thanks for the confusion guys....lol, just kidding, thanks j whiting!!

i have found if u run the front with the y pattern facing forward on the front end. it helps with on power steering. if you look at the pattern as the wheels would be turning u should see that there is more of tread making contact when the wheels are turned. I find the car will drift better this way. hope this helps and good luck

Calipers are made to run either way but all 4 should be facing the same direction. Point arrow forward for more side bite and less forward bite. Point arrows backwards for more forward bite and less side bite. The tires are made to mount in either direction
