Directional tires " is there a right and wrong "

Image
  By design directional tires on a drive axle displace water, snow and loose material to the center of the tread. When slippage occurs the treads then divert material to the side allowing more traction. Under braking material is channeled faster into the center of the tread. On a trailing or non-driven axle putting the tires on in a reverse direction will add to stability and increase the braking capabilities as any water , snow or loose material in continuously diverted to the  outside of the tread. And from farmers  the experts on directional tires     If you ever drove a farm tractor you'd understand. Some tires have a "directional" tread -- effectively >>>>> or <<<<<<. Now, you might expect that a tread of <<<<< would have better traction if you were attempting to pull it to the right (and it were resisting the pull by trying to go left), but that's not the case.

Several months earlier, Howard’s 23-year-old daughter suffered catastrophic injuries when, on a rainy day, her Chevy Cavalier had suddenly turned left across a highway median and was violently struck by an oncoming pickup truck. Howard’s daughter was ejected from the vehicle. Howard knew his daughter was a careful driver, and he refused to believe that she had voluntarily made this incomprehensible turn into oncoming traffic for no reason. Determined to learn whether something had caused his daughter to lose control of her car, he approached a prominent law firm, which turned the case down. He met with lawyers at a second firm, and then a third and a fourth.
