  1. this may be a dumb question but i'm not a tire guy. anyone know if a directional tire is on backwards if it will cause a vibration? I just bought some used 17x10 cobra wheels with tires for the back of my car a little while ago and have been dealing with some vibration issues. I noticed that the 2 i bought the tires are on the same way so one is on backwards. just wondering if this could be adding to my issues as i have herd several things about this down to the only problem is the traction and water shed of the tire.
  2. Usually it causes a lot of noise and bad wear.

  3. You also run the risk of belt separation. That may be the source of vibration you mentioned.
  4. thanks. took them off for now gonna have them corrected and looked at this week
