If you need tires and you can only afford 2, where do you put them?

Don't install your two new tires up front.

Don't have sound here so I don't know the reasoning. Will check it out tonight. I have always put the new tires on the front because I though they should be on the steering end of the car. I will see what it says tonight.

What have the rest of you done?

I've got this wrong, I've always put the good/new tires on the front. Always learning...

Me too! What my dad always told me to keep the steering but the video shows something totally different and makes sense....to me anyway.

Makes sense. It's a lot easier to control understeer vs. oversteer.

I am a master Tech in automotive new tires to the rear all the time we make customers sign a waiver on the receipt if they have us out in the front been to a lot of classes on the subject also if old tires on rear regardless of drive wheels and you corner you are 60-80 more likely to spin out from loss of traction if up front you can at least slow or correct to a point if you feel it sliding out another thing if a tire blows out on the front it's quiet easy to control it and safely pull over (yes it will destroy stuff but your safe ) if the rear blows out very little movements of the wheel cause huge shifts in vehicle ballance likely causing a spin out or worse a possible rollover Tires are a huge deal I am sure everyone remembers the good old explorer fiasco rear tires blowing out truck rolling over nightmare

The issue with them was the door place card said 25psi up front 30 rear no big issue there but how many people actually check there tire psi what was happening shops were doing rotates and not checking tires letting them leave or people read the cards wrong and filled tires incorrectly causing excessive heat in sidewalls and eventually blowouts and big problems and Firestone took the blame because ford would not admit there psi mistake those tires never had any actual defects in them at all worked for them awhile back when that was going down

But yes always put new on rear even thou it looks and sounds dumb its for your safety and everyone else's and I would sug to everyone have your alignment checked at least every 7-10k to help keep the expensive rubber on the tires minus burnouts
