    Hi

    Am interested to know what peoples thoughts are on the idea of switching a tire that I use to have on front left side to the rear right side ?

    The tire in question is a Pirelli P Zero Rosso 225/40 ZR 18 92Y with about 6mm tread left that has probably done about 10k on the front left, this was taken off to keep as a spare but I wanted to see if this can be used on the rear right.

    Thanks
    Will

    is it directional? i.e. has an arrow on to show fitment?

    Is it assymetrical?

    Just done a bit more reading thanks to your comment, Its non directional and symmetrical in design, which means I can rotate it from left to right.

    But... Since the tire has been used for about 10k miles on the left side, I wondered if Would have any adverse effects by running them on the right side?
