Default Stock aluminum rims

I have a question about my stock aluminum rims. On the left side of the car, the spokes point to the rear of the car. On the right side, the spokes point to the front of the car. Is this suppose to be like this? Or was it a mixup at the factory when installing rims? I'm kinda guestimating that their are 2 different kinds of rims, when installed, the spokes point in the uniform direction, either front or rear. If I'm being stupid here, just slap me please.
Thanks

No such thing as a stupid question. Almost any rim with the 'swept' spokes will be like this. Look at the Chevy trucks from 92-98 for example. You CAN buy aftermarkets that are set up 'right' but they're very expensive. This is normal!
