All Season Tyres

Post by NooNoo » Mon Sep 14, 2020 2:37 pm

Guys & Girls, I will soon need a couple of new tyres for the front of my 30.d s and currently have the pirelli p zero summers all round which came on the 22" wheels, I want to change to the scorpian verde all season, but the rears still have a good 6mm left but the fronts are down to around 3mm or less especially on the out side edge so want to get ready for the rainy winter months , the car is AWD but think I am right in saying it is rear wheel biased, so my question is will it be a good move to change the current rears to the front and fit the new verde all season to the rear, will this give me the best result in the winter months? I only plan to keep the car until June next year which is when the warrenty runs out so don't want to spend on 4 new tyres if two currently have a good few miles left in them, any advice appreciated
Thanks

That is what I would do. It is not like you are swopping summers for winters, just an intermediate swop.

I'm by no means an expert or have mechanical expertise, but my gut feel would be that having your steering shoes (which can have up to 50% of the drive in bad traction scenarios) as the all seasons would be better. My base for this is that not only do you want grip at the front when going around corners and for assisting the rears if they lose traction, but also when braking which is typically front biased.

Again this is just a gut feel, but I'm sure the far more experienced folks on this forum will be able to reveal light on either way.

I was always led to believe the good tyres should go on the rear. Just googled it and seems to confirms what I thought.

Yes after reading up some more about it last night from curiosity I'd agree with you Chris. (As I caveated before putting them on the front was a gut feel of the vehicle characteristics) An interesting article that I read about it: https://kumhotyre.co.uk/kumho-news/shou ... t-or-rear/.

My preference also would Be to fit the all seasons to the front, as for me, I feel it’s more important in every day driving To have better stopping capability in those situations where braking performance relies on maximum contact ie; removal of the most water etc, if your driving fast enough to loose grip to the rear then your not driving to the conditions in my opinion.

I’ve just had 4 new SCORPION ZERO ALL SEASON 265/40R22 106Y put on as will now be towing a caravan. Only done a few hundred miles and no heavy wet weather yet but they seem very sticky so far :D with the 22’s I can’t say I notice much more road noise to be honest.
