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....
Yup, that is the way for 2 tyre change format.....

Btw somewhat related, I found this interesting article about the view from Michelin about using very worn out tires, which might not be so bad after all! :D

So if we apply this finding to the topic of this thread, then not necessarily you must put the new tires at the rear! It still depends on the condition of your old tires and what tires are they compared to how good is the new tires that you buy. So let say you are already using a very good high performance tires like PS3. Then because you never rotate, you need to change 2 already originated from the front but due to budget limitation you settle with lower end tires, say some Achilles or something. Then by following the general guidance you put those new low end tires at the rear, and you might actually end up making the car more dangerous even in the wet!

I think regardless of front or rear..

most importantly, is to change the tyre on time..
its the safest bet.

There are many buts and ifs already. Topic is new tyre in front or rear, then how old is the rear, how much pattern left in the rear and now different tyre going budget. Well, if this is the case it will be a case to case basis already......hhahhahahha
