No.

Azenies all come from one mold. No right or left just inside and outside with the lateral groove to the inside like shown in the picture.

if they are directional tires by chance theres an arrow on them to show the rotation they should be going in, but since i cant see the sidewall i couldent tell you. but sounds like there mounted right from everyone else but personally i dont think so either but thats just iho.

Falken directional tires are marked on the sidewall with a weird arrow. Looks kind of like this : __\ At least that's how my Falkens were. They were put on at a shop and it rode weird in the rain.. Went back to the store and they showed me the arrows and spent an hour trying to figure out who had put my tires on wrong.

you will see a huge "OUTSIDE" labeled on the tire sidewalls.

So I am correct it is mount backwards.....because from the looks of the tread design, it will displace water towards the inside of the car than outside. So I guess you must of had a shitty wet ride.

Im guessing he took his left rear tire and put it on the passenger front. It looks like some serious camber wear on the outer side.

um... iono about you guys, but i do think thats on wrong, why? because look at the lines on the tires, it goes from out to in, where is should bee from in goin to out, as in when its rolling it flows water outwards from where the tire meets the ground. and if you look at that, when the tire is rolling it looks like it will bring water intowards the tires, hope you get my point...

Why don't you check out the Falken website? The Azeni st-115 has the arrow I was talking about. The sport rt-215 has inside and outside written on the sidewall(check out the 3D views, while the tires are rotating just click on them to move them manually). I'm not sure if the 215's are directional though, if not, they are mounted correctly.

wow, I love how people just randomly talk about crap they have zero experience with


Falken Azenies (the tires on that integra) only have an Inside and an outside, not a certian rotation. That tire is properly mounted.

The only time the directional tire comes into effect is when the people mounting the tire on to the rim. In that case, the line goes towards the inside.

finally someone says something that actually knows something about the tire.

i have the tires and i wondered the same thing when i first got them. but they are on the correct way, they are an assymetrical tire. so on the sidewall it will say outside, and thats the way they go. the tread goes opposite ways on the right and left hand side, but thats just how they were made
