When I ran these tyres I ran them so that the wide V's would contact first, if that makes sense?

I've tried to post a picture but I haven't posted enough.


Cheers,


John

looking from above the car, the V that starts from the sidewalls/edges of the tire should point forward. thats alteast how i ran them when i had a touring car
