Lack of direction

A fellow off-roader was looking at my Goodyear Wrangler MT/Rs the other day – those funny ones with the asymmetric tread pattern. They're supposed to (and do) combine the advantages of a mud tyre with an all terrain. "Too bad they're directional," he said, "or I'd probably buy a set." True, they do have a "directional" look to them, but in fact are multi-directional, although mount specific in that they have an in-side and an out-side and must be put on the rim accordingly.
