Why The New Tires ALWAYS Go On The Rear

posted on
Why The New Tires ALWAYS Go On The Rear

We get asked to put two new tires on the front all the time.

That's because the steering, traction, and engine weight wears the front tires about 4 times as fast of the rears. And with no rotation and bad wheel alignment, the front tires to wear out even faster, so there are times when you only need to buy two tires and the rear look brand-new.

All-wheel drive vehicles need special considerations, but for most cars, vans, SUV's and trucks, as long as the tires are the same type, rating, and size, there's no reason you shouldn't replace just 2 tires. 

BUT, it doesn't matter whether you own a front-, rear- or all-wheel-drive car, truck, or SUV, the tires with the most tread always go on the rear.

There is no "even if" to this one, all tire and vehicle manufacturers agree because the last thing you need in a front-wheel drive vehicle is to lose control of the rear-end when the worn tires hydroplane - Think handbrake turns on a wet and snowy road! 😲
