Re: 2 rear too 1 front tire?

depends....my fronts wore out faster on my previous 08, all on one side. Very uneven wear. Couldn't find out why. Replaced with new front and rear lasted 5k street miles and 8 trackdays

Rear tire was OEM dunlop.

I got 2 rears to one front, some times 3 rears. On the street I would get 2 to 1 all the time. But because I switched between brands I would buy both front and rear
