The question, “Where do I mount two new tires on a vehicle?” comes up often. The tire industry strongly recommends putting the two new tires on the rear. In a November 2010 article titled “Always Install Two New Tires on the Rear Axle,” Tire Review wrote:

“A loss of traction on a rear axle causes oversteer, which could cause a vehicle to fishtail and kick into a tailspin. A similar loss of traction on the front axle creates understeer, causing the vehicle to keep going in a straight line. For the driver, it’s easier to compensate for understeer; oversteer usually is much more hazardous.”

Discount Tire, in cooperation with Conti, demonstrated this effect in a live demonstration at the tiremaker’s proving grounds in Uvalde, Texas. Watch the video above and say no to mounting two new tires on the front axle of a vehicle.
