Two New Tires: Front or Back?

by Bob DeP.


Bob,
I will be replacing two tires on my '91 Mazda Protege (the ones I'm replacing are currently on the rear). I'm curious if it would be best to put the new tires on the front or rear, or does it matter, as far as traction, wear, etc?

Lon,
On a front wheel drive vehicle, it is always best to put the new tires on the front!
Good Luck!
Drive Safely!
