Question
Do these tires have to be mounted to rotate in a specific direction ? I don't see an arrow or direction indicated anywhere on the tire but they seem to make a bit of road noise when driving down the dry road . Like a humming noise . Is that normal ?

Answer
Steve,

Noise is not dependent on tire rotation direction nor mounting inside por out.  So even if the tire are mounted incorrectly, they will not make more noise than if mounted correctly.

But All Terrain tires are naturally more noisy because they are more aggressive.

I have authored or co-authored many publications - usually without credit. I can answer almost any technical question, but please don`t ask me to compare brands. I probably have prejudices because of my work experience.
