Are Arroyo tires directional?
Yes, the Arroyo Ultra Sport A-S is a directional tire. As a directional tire, the Ultra Sport A-S must be rotated from back to front or from front to back.
What happens if you run directional tires backwards?
On directional tires, there’s an arrow on the sidewall of the tires — when correctly mounted, the arrow points toward the front of the vehicle. If directional tires get mounted backward, you won’t get the hydroplaning resistance and other performance driving benefits the tread is designed for.
What happens if you flip directional tires?
A: No, you cannot change the rotation of a directional tire. A unidirectional tire has been designed to optimize its wet grip going in one direction. If you reverse the rotation, wet grip will suffer, braking distances will increase and you will lose cornering grip.
