Mixing Tyres

How to Mix Tyres

Considering mixing a set of new and worn tyres? Here is what you need to know before making your decision. Always remember that safe driving and reliability should be your focus when choosing tyres.

Mixing New Tyres with Worn Tyres?

Here is why you should always install two new tyres on the rear axle.

When replacing two new tyres instead of four, be sure that your new tyres are the same size and type as your current tyres, and that your dealer always installs the new tyres on the rear axle of your vehicle.

Why Put New Tyres on the Rear Axle?

  • New tyres will provide better wet grip than your half-worn tyres, increasing hydro-planing resistance.
  • When new tyres are installed on the rear, it helps reduce the potential for your vehicle to fishtail, and also prevents a loss of vehicle stability and grip in wet conditions.
