Directional Tire Arrows

When I purchased my 2012 xD I also purchased the optional 16" mag wheels. The dealer removed the tires from the standard steel rims and installed them on the mag wheels. Today I noticed that the Dunlop arrow on the drivers side were going backwards. The question.. does the arrow on the Dunlop tires indicate the direction in which the tire should go???

Might try doing a general search (like google) for your actual tire. Don't know exactly what tires you have. I have directional tires and yes the arrow indicates the rotational direction but it's only for water dispersal. It doesn't do any real damage to the tire. There are some which can be damaged however.

Generally if there is an arrow to designate a direction of rotation, there will be a word under or over it that actually says "rotation."

This isn't Always the case, but usually is.
