When the front tyres of a passenger car wear out faster than the rear tyres, the dealers tend to replace the worn-out front tyres with new ones. For the best ride and handling, it is better to have all four tyres as the same ones. This is possible through periodic tyre maintenance including proper tyre rotation. Though, if you need to change only two tyres, make sure to put both new tyres on the same axle. Keeping a similar tyre on each axle minimizes the difference in handling between the right and left side of the vehicle and minimizes pull while driving or while applying brakes.

For your safety and optimum performance, make sure to have enough tread on all car tyres and replace them when the tread wear indicators are exposed.

We hope the above guide has helped you find the right answer and you can install a new pair of tyres without any worry. You can also contact a Bridgestone India dealership near you, as our team of experts is ready to help you maximise the potential of your new tyres. Also, remember to get your tyres professionally checked regularly for better performance. Tip: The above article only includes cars, whereas for buses, place the best tyres in the front. However, if it is rainy season or a drive on wet roads, the new tyres should be in the rear position, and the partially worn-out tyres should be moved to the front. The best tyres on the rear axle help the driver to maintain control on wet roads since the tyres with deeper treads are better at resisting hydroplaning. Hydroplaning occurs on wet roads when the tyre cannot channel out enough water through its tread design to maintain effective contact with the road. If the rear tyres have significantly less tread depth than the front tyres, the rear tyres will hydroplane and lose traction on wet roads before the front tyres, which will cause the vehicle to start sliding. Even if you try to quickly release the acceleration pedal to slow down, this may make it more difficult for the driver to regain control, causing a complete spin-out and leading to oversteer. On wet roads, however, the front tyres will hydroplane and lose traction before the rear tyres if the front tyres have significantly less tread depth than the rear tyres. While this will cause the vehicle to understeer as the vehicle wants to continue driving straight ahead. Understeer is relatively easy to control because releasing the acceleration pedal will slow the vehicle and helps the driver to maintain control.
