prob a very silly tyre question

Im gonna bid on a st of 2nd hand wheels. Two tyres are 7.5mm and two are 5.5mm. Where should I put the tyres with the most depth left on them. Don't have an impreza that long and dont know which wears out quicker - font or back?

Re: prob a very silly tyre question

My last tyres got nearly 2years outa them the back ones were still at round 5mm and the front were at 3mm so going by that my front wore out faster than the back so Id throw the 7.5mm to the back and 5.5mm to the front

Re: prob a very silly tyre question

depends on ur driving style too, if u hoof it out the bends and get the rear loose u will wear the rears more, if u are fast in and tight thru corners and feed the power in you will scrub the fronts down quicker.
