Hello and thank you for using Just Answer


it can cause a pull so the car won't go straight.


the tread will not perform as intended and may not stick to the road as well especially in the rain.


the tire will also wear out prematurely


if you have a tire going the wrong way I recommend you fix it right away


let me know if you need more help
