    I have been running my MTR's with the whitewalls showing since I bought them. They have ugly rock rash now and I was thinking about swapping them around on the rim (Blackwalls out) and rotating them to the opposite side of the vehicle. Is this ok to do?

    I know once a tire has been ran in a certain direction, you should not run them the opposite way, correct?

    Jeff,

    It won't hurt anything to do that. When radials first came out they were falling apart when you flipped directions on them, and it was hard on the bias ply tires too. The tires these days it won't hurt a thing.

    Cool, I figured if I swapped them over to the opposite side they would still be rolling in the same direction, just to be safe :wink1:
