Rotating Stock Tires

I'm still stuck with the cheapo Firestones on my 2k1 lx sedan. I just hit 10,000 miles and need to rotate them. The manual gives two ways of rotating tires depending on your tires. So, are the Firestones non-directional or directional? Thanks.
ps. The wind here is scaring me right now~

If you can afford it get rid of the stock firestones, they are all bad, I rolled my car last week because of them.

But if you cant then I think the manual says exactly how to do this correctly.

Hope this helps

People make fun of me or are scared to ride in my car because of the Firestones. I looked at my manual and searched before posting this question. The manual (p237) gives instructions for rotating non-directional tires and wheels and instructions for rotating directional tires and wheels. But it doesn't state if the stock tires are directional or non-directional. That's what I need to know before I put my car on jackstands.

Should'nt it say on the tires themselves whether they are or are'nt?
