Where the rubber meets the road

Classical Mechanics Level pending

A car is driving to the right. There is air resistance, so the driver needs to keep the car in gear and their foot lightly on the accelerator to maintain a constant speed. The car's tires are rolling without slipping/skidding.

In which direction does the force of friction from the road act on the tires of the car?
