    Alright so i ran across a deal for some tires and I've got a question. I bought some slightly used goodyear a/t tires ( approx 5K miles on them) which were on a suv with the whitewalls out, will it effect anything if i put the whitewalls to the inside when i switch them to my truck? I dont see any dips or side wear on the tires but i wanted to get someone elses opinion just in case

    Uh, no. If so, then what would happen after tire rotations? The proper method for rotating tires is a "modified 'X' pattern": The front tires go straight back, then the rears go to the opposite side front location. Hence the rears will then be spinning the opposite direction after a tire rotation.

    some tires are unidirectional and you can only rotate front to back
