    as long as the wheels are the same size, shouldn't be a problem.

            Best to keep your better tyres on the rear though.

              Yeah, only read on here few months back someone changed them round then hit water on motorway and the rear aquaplained and spun out at speed. Got away with it tho if i remember correctly.

                I suppose the proper answer is to replace the problem tyres

                    Have you check the tire pressure since you swapped them?

                        I found that after 10K miles the front pressures had dropped by 12psi on the fronts - and yes I should've checked before and always do now every 1K miles

                          Are the pressures (from manual) diffrent front & back?

                          I.e. you could be running to higher pressure on the rear, and to lower on the front.

                              Thought it was 35 psi all round - what my manual says, but that's the 18's
