Question:

Can I mix tire types on my car?

Answer:

For best all-around performance, the same type tire should be used on all four-wheel positions. Tires of different size designations, constructions, and stages of wear may affect vehicle handling and stability. NOTE: Some vehicles are intentionally fitted with different size tires on front and rear.

 

 

For four-wheel drive vehicles, if no instructions for tire mixing appear in the vehicle owner’s manual, adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Do not mix sizes. All four tires must be branded with the same tire size.
  • Do not mix radial and bias-ply tires. All four must be either radial or bias-ply.
  • Be sure that the outside circumference of all four tires is within 1” of each other.
  • Do not mix tread patterns, such as all-terrain and all-season.
