stock RFT

Hey guys I am wondering if the stock 17s RFT has specific mounting directions, because i can't find the direction sign on the tire.

Correct, RFT = run flat

The 17s are all season tires and, therefore, most likely not directional.

That is a summer performance tire. Looking at a picture of the tread pattern, it does look like a non-directional tire. Note that the tread pattern runs in opposite directions moving out from the tire's centerline.

I am pretty sure they are non-directional and symmetric, so you should be able to on any which way.

cool, so i am good to go, I thought i was going crazy seeing the whole thing not maching up and can't find the sign for directional either.....you know it's amusing when a asian is looking at a tire real closely like he's never seen a tire before.
