Hi,

I just purchased a 2013 2.5i Limited OB with the Continental ContiPro Contact tires. How do you know if this tire is Unidirectional or Non-unidirectional?
I know this may be a basic noob question.

Also, do most people on the forum do their own tire rotation? If so, how do you do it? (jack, jack stands, etc.)

Thanks for your help

Look on the sidewall. If the tires are "unidirectional" they will have some sort of arrows pointing in the direction of rotation. Unless you pull the tires off their rims and remount them you can only "rotate" them front to rear and rear to front on the same side of the car.

They are not directional. Any directional tire will indicate "rotation" on the sidewall in some form (it'll state "direction---->" or "rotation---->" etc.)
