which direction do the spokes of the gsr blades is suppose to be pointing?

i recently got my blades and installed them tonight to test them out tomorrow and see if they are straight and what not. but after the installation, the left side's spokes are pointing forard: kind a like \
and the right side's are pointing backward: like /

is it normal...?

It doesn't matter.
But if you want to change it now you need to find out if you have directional tires...if so you're screwed unless you want to pay to have the tires switched in front or in back.

I thought you were talking about the same side....sorry.

As Milano said, that is the way it is. The rims only twist one way off of the car.

I noticed this too. The only rims that actually are directional are the prelude blades. Those rims can either be cutting or digging all around the car. But like Milano said, the one side of the gsr rim's are gonna be cutting and the other side digging.

yeah.. all the GSR blades point at the same direction when you lay them next to each other. so when you put it on the car. the driver side the blades will be facing backward. and the passanger side the blades will face forward.

"cutting", "digging", "scooping"... I heard "digging" and "swishing" when I was still in high school. I didn't realize people still said that type of thing... funny... yes, codenamezero, that's normal. When the wheels are made they all "point" the same direction. When you put them on your car they oppose each other so they wind up "digging" or "swishing" depending on which side you view the car from....
