It is directional tire.

I guess they cannot be changed left-right once they are installed to the wheels.

If front and rear camber angles are of the same sign, tire will wear unevenly even with regular rotation.
Does anyone know the camber angles of W124 (300D 2.5 turbo)?

I would say they are average. They only lasted like 32k miles though, I should have payed attention to the treadlife warrenty when I got em at sears.

60 65 series of ZE-512's have longer tread wear rating that lower profile ZE-512's.
In the Consumer Report test, where ZE-512 was rated as best buy, 195/65 15 was used. But CR did not rate tread life in that test.
