I posted this picture and I was told my tires are on backwards. The tires say outside on them and I googled this issue and it just seems like that is how the tire is made. Does anyone else have these Toyo R888Rs?

The channels do go the opposite direction on opposing sides.

This, the old R888 was directional but symmetrical. The R888R is asymmetrical but non-directional. I went with R888R in the front due to the better wear on the inside from camber which is why they changed it and R888 in the rear (solid axle) cause they look better and wear even anyway. I'm pretty sure the compound is the same R888 vs R888R, regular R888 are getting on in age though since I think they don't manufacture them anymore.
