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

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
