    no, but why do you want to do that, you want the most grip on the back as it is easierto correct over steer than trying to get the back end back in line.

      was thinking for even wear on the tyres,,

      im thinking buy 2 new tyres to raplace the front 2 but put them on the rear so it would have brand new rear tyres then and minor worn front ..

      just i hate having different tyres on back to front and i was recomended some good tyres ...

      that way the new tyres will be on back so will last longer and then when the tyres that or on rear now go n frnt will wear down then when i replace them i will have 4 the same tyres...

      confusing i know lol

          I like your logic and when I had to get one new one as I ripped the front passenger one, it went straight on the back.

          Talking tyres I saw a TT with almost bald tyres on the outer edge. I was tempted to tell him but thought if it's in that bad a state I think he must know about it and know that he is taking a risk with the law.

            I'd much prefer the better tyres on the front. Theyre the ones that pull the car along and i'd rather deal with the back stepping out than turning a corner and having the front go straight

                There also a video about this in the driving tips section I always thought putting newer on the front was better until I watched the video's but I suppose its personal choice

                      Still didn't change my mind It is probably correct on a broad basis as it pertains more to being able to "feel" the loss of grip, which obviously is easier to tell through the front tyres.

                      But as said above, just personal choice. Maybe
