quote:I'm sorry but your info is incorrect, the SP Sport A2 Plus is NOT a directional tire in any way, shape or form. It has to be installed with proper side out as marked on the side wall. But they CAN be cross rotated, to extend life and keep the noise under control, yet maintain the outside-orientation mentioned before. The company who makes it, doesn't put a rotation direction on the side wall for a good reason, and I tend to believe the source
