We put winter tires on up here. My car has different front/rear size rims/tires. When I switched them out last spring it just didn't drive comfortably. Sure enough, the big ones were on the right, the small ones on the left.

I do have 4 heavy duty l-78 with the one inch WW. But I also have 3 of the correct 670\15 tube type NOS are now in black. I'm up in the air on them. It was a cheap ambulance when new. So it's kind of let's see.
But right now I trust the 40 year old 8pl tires a lot more the 3 year old raidale

So can anyone tell me what is wrong with the way the tire is mounted on the car?

Tire's turning the wrong direction?

The mark should go in the direction of rotation. I do recall the full tire boys use to put the the insides backwards so that they had traction in both forward and reverse for off road use
