I'm not sure the wheels are "directional" as in they are designed to only rotate in one direction (there would be arrows forged into the rim itself - I haven't checked this) but they are directional in that they are not symmetrical and so they should all be pointed the same way for aesthetic purposes.

That's what they look like, on one side of the car they go forwards, on the other, backwards. I'll leave it open as to which is which!
WARNING: Danger of Electric Shock! Vehicle may accelerate quicker than anticipated.
I think the usual mounting has them with the top of the blade pointed forwards (ahead of the bottom).
Notice how both sides of this car have the wheels "chopping" towards the direction of travel:
There was an old picture of VP13 long ago where people comment that the old style forged wheels seemed to be mounted backwards (wrong side wheel.)
Perhaps later in production they stopped trying so hard to get the correct side wheel on each car?
