Re: Scuffed tire
I'm almost scared to answer questions like this in case something were to happen due to a blowout. I suggest taking it to a reputable tire dealer and have them inspect the tire for damage. There could possibly be damage to the sidewall as its the weakest part of a tire. If you do switch them around, be sure to mark the original direction of rotation on the tire so you'll know what goes where. Sometimes changing the rotating direction can unravel the steel belts causing a tire to separate.
