I had the snow tires put on and they are directional and have an arrow to point in which way they should rotate. They mixed up 2 tires so that the pass/front and driver/rear are rotating against the arrow. Should I bring the car back so they can switch it?
I don't know much about tires but I don't think that Nokian would go out of their way to recommed which way the tire rotates unless it made a difference. Can anyone help me here? Thanks.

Re: Question on directional tires (DCS)

With tires or any other part of the car, the manufacturer's installation instructions should be followed. With the directional tires, they're designed/engineered to perform at their best when rotating in the proper direction. If the tires are rotating in reverse, you're a) not getting the tire performance you paid for and b) might even be dangerous.
Take 'em back and have the shop install them properly.
