Quick question, debating whether or not to rotate my father's tires. He recently bought two brand new tires for the rear of the car, and up front he had older tires which have about 5-10k miles left on them (due to low tire pressure from leaks). Cant afford 2 more tires...not putting money into the old car.
Its a 1990 Pontiac 6000, FWD, no ABS or TRAC and the question is, what would be better, new tires up front or keep them out back? Having new ones up front, less slippage in snow and more control for steering and braking, but allow rear end to come out more. With current set up, steering might as well be absent with snow, but rear end may not come out due to traction, braking would take more distance.
I would like to change the new ones up front for...drifting purposes, but since i dont drive it daily i want whats safest for my father. PS. they're 195/70R15's size tires, skinnies as i like to call them. (compared to 225 tread)
