I recently called Michelin (1-888-871-4444) looking for clarification regarding the right & left orientation of the subject tire and got nowhere. The link below of a mounted Michelin A/S3+ looks to be a right-side rolling wheel/tire tread orientation. The tread looks to be expelling water towards the outside edges of the tread when rolling on the right-hand (passenger's) side. I'm assuming if there aren't separate right and left tires for the A/S3+ that the outside sidewall of the tire link below is the inside sidewall on the left-hand (driver's) side mounted tire.

Does anyone know for certain how this tire is supposed to be oriented on the driver's side (Left-hand side) or are there left and right tires?

Thanks in advance.

If you blow up the full sidewall picture you can see 'Outside' at the very top of the tread pattern. I don't see any directional indication but some of the lower right parts don't blow up well.

Thanks for pointing out the 'Outside' labelling in the pic.
