Silly tire tread question...

Are the treads on all tires supposed to face the same way?

I recently had a repair/rotation and I've noticed the passenger front and rear tire treads go one way, while both tires on the driver side go the other...

Wondering if this makes a difference?

Thanks!

Which tires? And if they're white on one side and black on the other, you've got no choice. Some are *definitely* made to run in one direction. Others, not so much.

If they are stock tires they are not directional. If they are directional they will have an arrow on the sidewall indicating direction of rotation.
