Asymmetric non directional?

I have gislaved nordfrost 200s
they are asymmetric but non directional.
However that means the tread pattern is different from left to right wheels.
On the left the tread evacuates outwards but if I swap it over, it's the opposite.
Is this correct? it means my tread on each side is different

I read that but still not sure. They say either side but as the tread points out on left and in on right the water evacuation will be different in each side of the car.

Call the manufacturer. But aren't radials rotated straight front to rear anyway? Hmm...no i guess not if the spare is included. Or maybe that was just the old school method.

Some cars don't have a spare now.

Yes, old school method that used to be required. With today's radial tires I was advised to cross the front tires to the rear and move the rear tires straight forward so that eventually each tire will make it to every corner of the RWD pickup. I was also advised that on FWD and AWD cars to cross the rears to the front and move the front tires straight back. Same principle. Today's radial tires are a little different than those of 40 years ago.
