I am purchasing Pirelli Cinturato P7 tyres. I have read that these tyres are asymmetric. What does this mean for fitting?
You are correct. Instead of directional arrows, asymmetric tyres mark the inside and the outside of the tyre. All you have to make sure is that the "outside" of the tyre is... well on the outside :)

All asymmetric tires have specified on the sidewall the outside/inside position. A simple glance isn't enough to define the right fitting position.
