backward rims?

Hey well I just got me a 1999 lude base model with blade alloy rims. But on my lude it seems that the blades of my rims "swirl" in different directions kus the shop probably put them on without knowing. But it makes a choppy look. So my question is, would it mess up my cars performance or the tire if I rearrange them and put them in the right direction? I.E. the traction of the tires or the allignment?.
Thanks.

Re: backward rims?

as long as the tread on your tires isnt directional, you shouldnt run into any problems. mine came like that too and it was the first thing i changed lol

Trust me, just swap them so they flow in the same direction, looks 10 times better

Re: backward rims?

Just make sure the tyres still go the right way. Not all, but some tyres, even though not a "directional" tread pattern can only go on one side.

Re: backward rims?

I'm picky jus like the others!!! When I get tires I tell them to rotate the rims as well as make sure the swirls allrotate in the same direction and to make sure the tires are facing the same direction too!!!
