Tyre direction: how to identify it

Whether going full speed on a straight stretch or being sporty round the corners, directional tread pattern tyres ensure driving pleasure with full safety – especially in wet conditions. A prerequisite for safe traction and especially good running characteristics is correct fitting. But how can you tell the direction of the tyres ?

Directional tyres are marked on the side, i.e. on the tyre's sidewall. You will see the word "Rotation" or "Direction" written here. Next to it, there is a small arrow which indicates the tyre's forward direction (rolling direction).
