    inside out tire mount, confirm that we can !

    there was an event here in Mexico where there was a Nitto tire representent

    I ask him If I can mount mu Nt 420 inside side on the outside to get better tire wear

    He told me what I was thinking that there is no problem with those Nitto

    The mark inside and outside is only to make sure that when they mount the tire on the rim they will install them to look the same on the thread patern, that is the reason.

    If you dont mind, you can even mount them one on the inside and the other on the outside, only the assymetric thread will look differant since those tire are not unidirectional.

    Of course, you cannot do that with unidirectional tire but most of inside and outside tire you can do since the rotation do not make any differance.

    Now I will be able to get more millage on those Nitto !

    When I asked on this forum , noone suggest me to do that since it may be dangerous but nw it is cnfirm that there is no problem and they are design for that, to rotate on both side !

    Good thing about Mexico is also it cost me 200 pesos to rotate both tire on the rim, + Balance + nitrogen+ wash the car !
    About 17$ US

    In Montreal, It cost me 30$ per rim to mount tire and balance because it was 22 inch !

    Drove them for about 400miles and they are not more noisy at all, exactly the same as before

    Last test will be under the rain, it is not raining often here but I will post news about

    I love those Nitto, O my 3000miles ride with the trailler last time, we whent into heavy rain often
    and the car was tracking like on rail, No slipping at all on the car, the trailler was more sliding than the car at some point !

    I am now at 20000 miles on them and I am not easy on them, the rubber in the fender will prove it !
    With the flip I did, I guess I will do another 10000 miles more less

    Front are new, only have 4000 miles on them
