Question wrong fitting of tyre

This morning I noticed some difference in tread pattern of front and rear tyres on my Baleno.On close inspection,I observed that,while three tyres are fitted correct,with outside marked on outer side,one is fitted opposite way.These are Michelin XM and have covered app. 6000 kms.
Now what should I do? Keep them as they are,or get it fitted correctly, which as I know is not good as changing rotation in radial tyre makes it weak.

get if fit in the right direction and if still find any wobbling or braking issues then go for a replacement.

and by the way are the xm1 s not bidirectional?

Even if they are bi-directional, they can be asymmetrical

Asymmetrical basically means you need to make sure the outside and inside of the tyre are fitted properly. They have clear markings on the tyres.

Unidirectional tyres(like the Yoko S drivers, Advan NEova, etc) can be fitted on the rim in any direction(inside and outside of the tyre doesnt matter) but the tyre has to rotate in the direction indicated.

Do a 5 tyre rotation. Bring in the stepney and put this wrongly fitted tyre in the stepney.
