    It is indeed very troubling to see the horribly incorrect and unsafe advice that was given here by another poster.


    Since you are most likely the most qualified poster here yet on this subject:
    In your opinion Gary, what would you recommend the original poster do? Buy 1 used tire, buy 1 NEW tire, Buy 2 new tires, buy 4 new tires?
    You’re a funny guy you know that?

    I said to buy a used/new tire and make sure it is shaved to the correct tread as the rest of the tires. I don’t see how this is “bad” or incorrect information.

    You always want the best tires to be on the front, unless you’re trying to satisfy the tire companies. Another poster explained all about this.

    Funny how you say my information is incorrect, yet you say wrongly advise everyone that the Mazda MZI motor was designed by ford. You’re literally a moron..

    I simply outlined my own experience.

    In those extensive tests done by manufcaturers, how did cars with new (or better) tyres on the rear go in straight line emergency braking tests in the wet, compared to new tyres on the front?
    Good point, and you won't find any tests for wet weather emergency braking distances with new tires on front vs rear from the tire manufacturers. They only try to whip the rear end around on a wet track.

    My post was not directed at you. Sorry if it appeared that way.

    HUH?? Do I need to go back and quote everything you said to remind you? You are totally false...

    You told the original poster to:
    "just buy one new tire, you'll be fine man. you're clearly more concerned about striking a good deal with some low performing commuter tires from costco, don't waste your time changing all 4."

    This is bad advice, I do not know any other way to put it to you.

    Arrow Tire dilemma - 2016 CX-5 GT

    I use my common sense putting tires with a little more tread at front which carry more responsibility on car safety and performance hence wearing faster. This will even out the tread depth better for all 4 tires. We're not talking about putting worn-out tires with less than 2/32" tread depth to the rear.

    Agree, common sense goes first always.

    You people need to stop being a bunch of sheep and falling for the bullshit that tire companies spew to get more money from all of you. It’s ridiculous..

    Curses, you've uncovered our dastardly plot! All that work to make driving safer was really just a front to extract money from the masses.

    (Did you know we use 0W20 oil in the tire formulations? Shhh, don't tell anyone...)

    Indeed, I knew that of course before I posted the question.

    I think once the lawyers got involved, (google lawsuits when tire dealers put new tires on front) it became a cover-your-ass situation for all tire manufacturers and tire dealers. It also happened to benefit both tire manufacturers and tire dealers (in the name of safety), so it really was a no-brainer for them to push this policy.

    Here is a good read on how this whole "new tires on rear" got started in the early 2000's when a law firm that specialized in vehicular personal injury lawsuits had a link on Wikipedia when searching oversteer/understeer.

    How a bogus Wikipedia entry changed nationwide tire company policy
