Directional tread tires can only go on one side of the car, grooves look like they are going forward. Non Directional tread can go on any one of the 4 sides of the car.

unidirectional tread:



Directional Tread:



Non Directional:

You can also check the side wall and look for an arrow for direction.

if getting one directional tires, make sure its is mounted correctly. when i went to discount tire center in january they mounted my tires backwards so the treads were facing the wrong direction. i, of course, later fixed it myself because why would i trust people who can't do it right in the first place?

i personally like one directional tires
