Rotation direction Toyo R52 tyres

Today I replaced the winter tires with my 18inch summer wheels with Toyo R52 tires 18-215-50. I can not detect a turning direction anywhere on the tires. There is also no left or right on the tires. Is it possible that the direction of rotation does not matter?

Ive tried to find the tire online but have not had much luck probably because of my location. That being said there are alot of tires here which do not have a specific position/rotation requirement. Typically specialty summer tires *might* have that requirement because of the alignment of the tread but there should be some indication of the direction needed on the tire sidewall. Im not sure if by summer wheels you mean actual summer composition tires which are meant only for dry pavement, or just normal tires you swap on when not using the winter set since that would make a difference in this. If you have a link to the tire with seller specs and pictures it would help further answer this.

Hope that helps.

The R52 doesn't appear to be directional or asymmetric from the photos I've seen.

thank you guys. I have taken another wheel and examined both sides well. There are no indications on the tires that indicate a designated direction of rotation
