: Anyone know which is the proper way to mount the wheels? Trailing edge towards the front or back of the car? I just got a set and the front wheels are mounted one way, while the back are mounted the other way.

: Thanks

Congratulations on your excellent choice.You are correct, the wheels are left and right handed. The fine point of the throwing star should be to the front, the trailing edge to the rear. Be careful when you swap them around to make sure the tires are still rotating in the correct direction. Most current 17" tires are designed to rotate one way only (unidirectional). They have an arrow on the sidewall that shows the correct rotation.
