i know i'm asking for it BUT...anyone try to replace only the backs then do the fronts later? I have 10K left on my fronts.
I would not be worried about mixing them that way.......unless you plan to set records on Santa Susana Pass or Box Canyon roads. It's counter intuitive looking at the treadwear numbers 140 vs 300 but the Michelins sure seem to stick better than the Potenzas ever did.
