I think one of my front tires is installed wrong. The treads are squiggly on one side and straight on the other outside.

My guess the left tire was remounted on the wheel backwards. Comments?

Read your tires, also make sure they are the same make and model. When I say read your tires, you're looking for one of two things:
1) An arrow and the words "Rotation Direction"
2) The word "Outside"

In this case, I suspect they will have one or the other, and if they do, it will confirm that a tire (and which tire) is wrong.
