Can I Mix Different Brands Of Tyre On My Vehicle
In order to achieve optimal driving characteristics we recommends that the same tires are fitted on all wheel positions of your vehicle. In other words tires of the same brand, tread pattern tire size, load index and speed symbol should be fitted all round. Especially important is that the tire size load, index and speed symbol are in accordance with the vehicle manufacturer’s specification for all wheel positions. In many countries, this is a legal requirement. Driving your vehicle with a non-recommended mix of tire sizes, constructions, and speed ratings can be dangerous and illegal. Follow the vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations and/or seek the advice from a trained tire specialist if you consider upgrading your tires with different sizes, constructions, load ratings or speed ratings.
Can different tread pattern depths be mixed?
If it is decided to only replace 2 tires on your vehicle then the new tires will probably have more tread depth, than those remaining on the vehicle. Mixing of different tread depths is generally permissible.
The tire industry recommends that the new tires should be fitted onto the rear axle.
Placing greater grip on the rear axle is generally recommended to prevent a possible over steer condition and loss of vehicle stability on slippery surfaces. Some car manufacturers recommend installing the newest tires on the front axle. Consult with the car manufacturer or tire specialist for further information.
Exception for approved mix tire fitments.
Some vehicles may come factory equipped with different size tires fitted to the front and rear axle. For these approved mix tire fitments, you should follow the car manufacturer’s recommendation.
