Exclamation Swift VXi tyres Uni-directional??

I know there are already many threads present in this section that speak about unidirectional tyres. I just have a perticular query which I coudnt find elsewere...

Does Swift Vxi have unidirectional tyres?? The standard fitment is JK 'Tornado'. I recently got the tyres rotated in my swift and noticed that the 'Arrow' shaped threads point backwards on the left front tyre and forward in the right front tyre. Same in the rear. Also, the tyre noise has increased incredibly.

I went through the JK tyres website but they do not speak about unidirectional tyres in their FAQs or elsewere in the site!

Please help..

The tyres arent uni-directional, AFAIK. They are just part of the sidewall design for jk tyres.

The same was reported for the SX4 as well, by some of the members.
