That is exactly what the manufacturers mentioned. If you tent to understeer, you will slow down, rather than go faster and oversteer in a FWD.....lol
thats why this thread or topic is very confusing..

I guess I will still stick to new tyres in front..
I don't drive fast in rain, only like 150km

its the front tyre that need to be replaced every few years

That's what I don't like, I'd rather maintain more or less still similar balance even though overall grip already reduced. Hence I always rotate if possible. Plus poor me don't have budget to change tires too often leh even if only 2. If I also only keep changing 2, I never get the experience of having all 4 brand new fresh rubbers to enjoy and can never evaluate them properly.

150kph is pretty fast in the wet la especially if got some sweepers, don't be nuts coz it can endanger others also. You're not Ayrton Senna bro!

You are different, because you follow 4 tyre change and do rotate.
As per topic. what if you need to change only 2 tyres.....lol

If rain, dont speed. Simple.
Duno when going to run out of luck.
My big luck,, is manage to avoid that crazy girl drive against flow.
No lottery luck, else buy neighbor house.

Basically you can stick it anywhere you want if you know what you are doing. Otherwise, always in the rear.

I've been reading this and I'd like to chip in,

The science as to why new tyres should be in front (edited: I meant rear) is clear, but this will only work if your existing tyres are in good condition. It's counter productive if you've only got 50% or below left and you put that pair in front to be honest

Agree on this, whether in front or in the rear depends on the thread balance of the old tyres too.....

Default Re: new tyre in front or rear?

well.. usually rear tyre is OLD but still got plenty of thread left....

so thats where i begin to put new tyre at rear tyre...and use older in front....



since FWD is faster wear infront... hence...old front will fully utilized...then when it time finished all the front thread...

buy new tyre and put at the rear again....

older rear which was previously was new then relocated to the front...


and the cycle continues....
