Volvo XC90: Wheels and tires / Tire direction of rotation

Tires with tread designed to roll in only one direction are marked with an arrow on the sidewall.

Volvo XC90. Tire direction of rotation

The arrow shows the tire's direction of rotation.

  • Tires should only be moved between the front and back, never from right to left or vice versa.
