    Hi everyone. I drive an Alto Vxi 2000 model and recently replaced my ageing tires and rims with new rubber and alloys. My tire guy recommended that I go in for 12 x 5J rims and 165/70 R12 77T Hankook H706 tires. However since I did not fancy the white lettering of the Hankook I asked them to fit the tires with the white lettering inside. I'm quite sure the tires are non directional but I still have some doubts. Is it ok to reverse fit the tires and what is the performance of the Hankook H706 tires?

    I searched online but there are no reviews or comments on these tires.
    Would be much obliged for any inputs. Thanks

    you should not reverse the tyre directions in any situation
    the threads are there for a purpose.

    if its not directional, its not much of an issue, how did the wider tyred impact your fuel economy?
