Hello. I have Continental ContiViking Contact 5.
I noticed that the wheels on the left side have the pattern opposite way than on the right. What is right here? The tires dont habe an direction arrow. For me it seems that the tire on left side is correct.

Left side:


Right side:

If they don't have a direction, technically they can go either way. Do they have a marking for "outside"? I expect they want the larger grooves on the inside. You also need an alignment as the inner tread has much more wear than the rest. If you are lowered, you need adjustable upper arms to lessen the camber. If not lowered, the car has too much toe-out and would wander on the road.

Hi and thanks for the answer.
Yeah, it have marking for inside and out which is correct.
The car is not lowered from me. It is bluemotion so it is lowered from the factory. I guess you are right, it need to be aligned when I see the pictures.
