    Default Tyres and direction

    Just fitted new Kumho tyres on my car last night and wanted to check that i've put them on the right sides as they are directional,think thats right,......

    2 tyres have a red 0 on the outside and the other 2 have them on the inside,which side should have the red 0????

    Have the red 0 on the drivers side at present is that right......

    Yep they should have arrows on the tyre as u look at them, that should give u the answer of which direction they should turn!

    if u look at the tyres from the front of the car, the v pattern of the tread should be a V if its ^ this way then they are on the wrong way

    the red "O" has nothing to do with the direction. There will be arrows on the side wall, or maybe even the word "outside"
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    the red dot should be inline with the vaulve for a perfect wheel balance as the tyre is balance at the factory hense the coloured lines on the tyre. their also should be a arrow on the side wall for direction, if it the wrong way then get them change straight away as this can cause bad vibratios and they wont stick to the road and wear out twice as quick
