New tires front or back axel
I have often considered what I would do if I were to buy only two tires and keep the best of the other tires for the second pair. I don't know whether my thought process is correct, but I determined that I would put both new tires on the streetside so that if I have a flat or blowout it will more likely be on the curbside, and that would also mean that one of the new tires would be on the rear wheel ahead of the dump valve assembly that is often badly damaged during a blowout or when a tires throws its tread. My line of reasoning is that the DuraTorque axle is essentially independent so each tire/wheel is going to independently seek its position on the pavement. I may be totally off-base, but that is what I have been considering!
Good luck with your investigation!
