    The dunlop sports are asymmetrical so they can go whichever way.

    You could always google search "dunlop sp sport directional".

    Mark, what if you're going in reverse, should you change the tires prior to this so they're facing the other way?

    I hear it saves gas. Like 80mpg highway.

    I'd hold out on putting the stock summers back on. If it snows the only direction the tires will go are into a ditch.

    What if my forward is your reverse? Perhaps I've been driving in reverse since 1982. It would explain a lot of the looks I get.

    I agree with this statement. Especially seeing that you are in NH. I am in Maine (hi neighbor!) and I typically don't put my summers back on until May. And the main reason I wait that long is because I go to NH a lot!

    That is false. It doesn't just save gas. Think about it. If you are using gas to go forwards, then you must be generating gas when you are going reverse. Simple.
