Common Tire Myth
When replacing only two tires, the new ones go on the front.
The truth: Rear tires provide stability, and without stability, steering or braking on a wet or even damp surface might cause a spin. If you have
new tires up front, they will easily disperse water while the half-worn rears will go surfing: The water will literally lift the worn rear tires off
the road. If you're in a slight corner or on a crowned road, the car will spin out so fast you won't be able to say, "Oh, fudge!"
There is no "even if" to this one. Whether you own a front-, rear- or all-wheel-drive car, truck, or SUV, the tires with the most tread go on the
rear. Don't believe it? Watch this video..
What the Tire Manufacturers Say.
Goodyear: www.goodyeartires.com “When you select a pair of replacement tires in the same size and construction as those on the car, we
recommend you put them on the rear axle.“
Bridgestone/Firestone: www.tiresafety.com from the Replacement Manual: “Winter tires are best applied to all vehicle positions. If winter tires are
applied to the front axle of any vehicle, they must also be installed on the rear. Do not apply winter tires to only the front axle --- this applies to all
passenger cars and light trucks, including front wheel drive, 4x4 and all-wheel drive vehicles.“
BF Goodrich: www.bfgoodrichtires.com “REPLACEMENT OF TWO (2) TIRES It is recommended that all four (4) tires are replaced at the same time.
However, whenever only two tires are replaced, the new ones should be put on the rear. The new tires, with deeper tread, may provide better grip
and water evacuation in wet driving conditions.”
Please note that while this is intended to outline general guidelines and considerations for tire placement, it is not all-inclusive.
IMPORTANT: Before replacing tires, ALWAYS refer to and follow the vehicle manufacturer's replacement tire restrictions and
