Here’s a question that has caused me to rethink my position many times. When installing only 2 new tires, should you put them on the front or rear? I know the differences between FWD, AWD, 4WD and RWD, but according to an article I read in a trade magazine, it really does not make a difference what vehicle you are referring to, if you are only replacing 2 tires, they should always be installed on the rear.

What are your thoughts?
