Continental Tires on 2015 v8

Are these Symmetrical, or unsymmetrical? Directional, or not?

I am very confused...looking at the tread, and looking online.

With a Tire Rotation, the road noise is increased substantially...and i am concerened if the dealer did the right rotation?

Pls help

Normally, directional tires (should only go in one direction) will have a directional arrow on the sidewall, and asymmetrical tires will be marked "this side out." The ProContact TX are both non-directional and symmetrical. I've had mine rotated (side to side) without issue.

Your dealer may have adjusted the tire pressure during service, which can affect both road noise and handling. The cold tire pressures with the 19" wheels are 33 psi front and 35 psi rear.

The thing to watch out for on this car:

Different front and rear sizes as follows:

Front 245/40R19
Rear 275/35R19

You may know this, but a kid with an impact wrench may not. So maybe, the tires were rotated front to back, anyway.

Also, in the same vein, anytime somebody goes near my wheels, the first thing I do when I get home is check to see if the lugs are torqued up.
