Default RE: Is Pirelli Nero Zero tread directional

For everybody that didn't get LX's original question, many tires are "directional". Meaning that just like you have a left and right shoe, you have a left and right tire. This is very common with performance tires. I was wondering the exact same thing the other day with my nero's. Apparently, as has been stated, even though they are asymetrical, they are not directional.

Moonstang said it better than you did. He doesn't type with a Canadian accent like you do!

Yes, exactly. Just like how directional shoes always point inward. You dont have one shoe point in and the other point out. As was mentioned earlier it is not a hard question. Obviously they have to be facing OPPOSITE directions to promote balance. Otherwise your car is going to slightly drift in one direction which is bad.
