Many factors – from front-wheel drive to braking – cause front tires to wear faster than rear tires. If the tires aren’t rotated on a regular basis, this will mean the front tires will wear out well before the rear tires.
If your front tires are worn (click here for how to quickly check), there is no need to buy four new tires. At Champtires, we can match the tread level and brand name of your remaining tires – which will result in you saving hundreds of dollars.
However, the question remains: should the newer tires go in the front or the back?
For ultimate safety and performance, newer tires should always be placed on the rear of the vehicle. The back tires should not be more than 2/32 of an inch lower than the car’s front tires.
Why is this? Studies have shown that cars not following these guidelines can have serious control issues. All major tire manufacturers recommend that the best two tires should be installed on the rear of the vehicle, with no exceptions. Champtires adamantly stands behind this recommendation.
