Buying a full set of tires can get pricey. Luckily, buying two tires at once can keep your wheels going round while saving you money. Before you make your purchase, check out these tips for buying a pair of tires.
Due to road conditions and consistent braking, our tires wind up losing air pressure and tread depth. And for those of us with front-wheel drive, we see our front tires wearing out much faster due to excessive stop-and-go braking and steering.

This guide will help you determine the most important question to ask yourself when buying two new tires—
which pair you should replace first?

Maintaining control on wet roads is far easier when you put new tires on your rear axle. The tread depth of new tires are better
for resisting hydroplaning.

Worn rear tires have less tread and lower hydroplaning resistance. This can cause you to lose control on wet roads, forcing the rear end of your vehicle to swing out of control.

The deep tread depth of new rear tires will give you greater hydroplaning resistance and better control over your vehicle.

Rotating your tires as part of your regularly scheduled vehicle maintenance has many benefits. It helps you maintain an even amount of treadwear on all four tires, prolongs the life of your tires, leads to improved gas mileage and makes for a smoother, more comfortable ride. Regularly rotating your tires can also prolong the life of your vehicle’s suspension components by reducing vibrations. Also, many tire manufacturers require regular tire rotations in order to keep the mileage-warranty valid.

A good rule of thumb is to rotate your tires at the same intervals in which you get your oil changed, whether your tires show uneven wear signs or not. While this is a good recommendation, you should always follow the guidelines in your vehicle’s owner manual for timing as well as the best rotation pattern for your vehicle and type of tires.

Ideally, tires should be replaced in complete sets, but if you’re planning on buying just two tires, never forget that the new pair of tires should always be installed on the rear axle and the existing partially worn tires moved to the front axle.
