PCNA Tire/Wheel: Installation question

Recommended Posts

I recentley purchased the 18" Carrera wheels with Pirelli Pzero Russo tires. I did not see anything on the tire sidewalls that indicated direction of rotation so I assume it did not matter which side of the car I installed them on.

Just want to make sure I did not miss any tire markings, does it matter which side of the car they are installed on?

Thanks for the input,

Gary, the Pirelli PZero Asimmetrico Rossos have an "asymmetric" tread design. They are not directional tires. They are designed to be mounted with the lettered sidewall always facing outward. It doesn't matter which side of the car they're on as long as the lettering is facing outward.

I still have the Pzeros that came with the car, only 5k miles on them as far as I can calculate (previous owner put them on before I purchased).

My thought was to use the Turbo's as track/autocross wheels and will probably use the original tires for now, I am not sure my experience warrants the purchase of racing rubber just yet.

I will be going to the Porsche Driving Experience next month and also plan to attend a few local club DE and autocross events.

It's a good idea to learn your street tires first. I've tracked my Rossos several times and they have plenty of grip. But as your skills progress, so does your speed! :D Sooner or later you'll be longing for a tighter suspension and more rubber grip...

Let us know how PDE goes...
