Depends on whether or not youre parking uphill or downhill. Uphill I believe th tires would need to be pointing opposite the curb so if you rolled back the curb would stop the car before it went too far into traffic.

I dunno, wheels towards the curb <to the right> if car rolls forward, front wheels get the curb, if it rolls back, back wheels get it.

Step 3:
Turn the steering wheel toward the curb if the car is facing downhill. The front part of the front tire should be turned into the curb.

Step 4:
Turn the wheel away from the curb if the car is facing uphill. The back of the front tire should be turned into the curb.
