    firestone tz200 tyre directional?

    Quick question, is the firestone tz200 directional? IE, does the tyre have to fitted one way on one side of the car and a different way on the other? Or can it be used on either side no matter what way its fitted, there are no indications saying direction but there are arrow like lines on it but not 100% sure. Thanks for any info.

    Thanks for the help, just found a big screw in one of my tyres and i still had my old wheels and 1 of them has an almost new tyre on it so just wanting to check if it was safe to use. I think i might swap my spare out and stick this instead as my spare is a bit low anyway. Hopefully the tyre with the screw in it is repairable.

    Cheers.
