The Importance of Installing a Pair of Tires on the Rear Axle
It’s generally understood that the front set of tires on a vehicle with four identical tires will wear out first. This is due to the fact that the front pair takes the brunt of the acceleration, steering and braking forces, leaving the rear tires relatively unscathed. Our tire and auto service center recommends that drivers get their tires rotated on an annual basis in order to avoid wear and tear on one specific pair of tires.
Unfortunately, it’s easy to forget to get the tires rotated on a regular basis, which then leads to the front pair wearing out before the rear pair. When this is the case, our professionals will recommend purchasing a new pair of the same tires which are then placed on the rear axle.
Ideally tires should be replaced in complete sets and rotated throughout their life to equalize front-to-rear and side-to-side wear quantity while enhancing each tire’s wear quality. However, when tires are replaced in pairs it is recommended that the new pair of tires be installed on the rear axle and the existing worn tires moved to the front. The reason is because new tires on the rear axle help the driver more easily maintain control on wet roads since deeper treaded tires are better at resisting hydroplaning.
