    If there is no directional arrow I would imagine that they can run either way. The spacesaver should be run at a pressure of 60psi so you will probably get a lot of noise ie rumble from this tyre + it is only designed to 'get you home' and shouldn't be used as a substitute for a normal tyre, as well as having a max speed of around 40mph.

    They are 235/35/19 y rating. Sorry no pic as i use my phone to post. Maybe it is the space saver then it does look really low. spacesavers tiny!!! Car looks silly wi it on, but will be gettin anotha tyre on the snowie tommoro anyway. And i mite change em round see if it helps. I thought all tyres was made to go the same direction, and it was just which side u put it on to affect the rotation been correct!?

    Also if you drive on the space saver for long you will start to wear the inside of the other tyre and then need two..... I would not drive more than 100 miles on it if I could help it...

    As your not able to post pics and clearly have no idea about tyre fitting, when your getting that other tyre fitted, ask the fitter
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    lol was after the make and model of the tyre etc not the size, that we could google it and look at the tread pattern to advise you on its rotational dirtection..
