    Pretty sure you've got one of them on the wrong wheel.

    The patterns look wrong... =\

    Yeah, the one you've got on the back right is supposed to be on the front left.

    Yes Hellcat, they're asymetric but it has nothing to do with that. Check on the side of the tyre - there should be a word Rotation and an arrow pointing which way they should rotate. I'm 99,9% sure that it's wrong - as the guys were saying above, it looks wrong and it should be bringing the water outside of the tyre where your right tyre will be bringing it INSIDE...
    Anyway - It's wrong as the right tyre should be looking as a mirror view of the left tyre. That's my opinion.

    hehe 0.1% is enough for me!

    It has everything to do with being aysmetric. There is an 'inside' and 'outside' - not a 'Rotation'.

    How are you enjoying these tyres Hellcat?

    I have the midrange Nexen N2000 (came with the car) They are fine in the dry, not sure about the wet I have not driven them much in the rain. There is one extreamly annoying problem stones get stuck in the tread from time to time and you can hear them ticking as the wheel goes round. I have to keep pulling them out :P So for that reason I wont buy these again.
