    I always thought that when you went in reverse it filled up the tank proportionately to how much it would empty out if you were going forward?

    Thanks in advance..
    To answer your question; asymetrical tires are not directional. They have a different traead pattern on each side so must be mounted with the correct side out which means that they rotate in different directions on each side of the car.

    Directional tires have a symetrical tread, the same both sides, and must be mounted to rotate in the correct direction.
