    The front tyres on our Touran always seem to wear excessively on the inside edges. I've tried having the tracking checked / adjusted, but it hasn't really changed the wear effect.

    I'd like to put directional tyres on so that I can get them switched left-right (onto the other rim) at each MOT so the inside edge becomes outside. This wouldn't work with asymmetric ones marked "outside" on the wall.

    However on every UK web site I've looked at it's very hard to identify which summer tyres are directional (unlike all-season / winter which are described as such) when trying to do online purchase for scheduled fitting. Does anyone have any tips for finding them?

    In case it helps, I usually fit Dunlop, Michelin or Conti.
