Flipping rims? (Newb question)

848 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  jds62f
So I have searched this on google, but haven't found any info specifically about this.

I know the elise has staggered wheels
rotating them traditionally front to back is impossible, clearly

rotating them left to right due to unidirectional tires is also a no go

but can rims themselves unidirectional in any way?
(besides any obvious pattern directions)

or am I worrying for nothing about mounting new tires "the wrong way" on the wheels.

it really shouldn't be possible to mount the tires wrong. If you want to do a tire rotation, dismount them from the rims and swap only the tires.
