    Tyres Again!!!

    I am conteplating replacing my rear tyres as they are worn but the fronts have a couple of thousand miles left on them.

    Would I be foolish to change just the rear?

    I have been quoted Pounds386 for a pair of Michelin PS2 N1 fitted 265/35/19 which I think is a good price.

    (reason for question - I am an ex-quattro-man and have always changed all 4 at the same time)

    Cheers

    Re: Tyres Again!!!

    I believe that the N numbers should match all round; you don't want to fit rears then find that you can't find matching fronts. Might be worth buying 4 matching N numbers at once.

    Re: Tyres Again!!!

    Newaddict, now many miles have you done and what sort of driving. Just interested to get an idea how long my 19s are likely to last, got 24k+ out of the 17s on my old 'S'.

    Price sounds good, but if you haven't done so already try Micheldever Tyres - only none OPC place I trust with the wheels and are generally very competitive.... plus they'll advise on whether to change all 4, personally I wouldn't bother if plenty of meat still on the fronts....

    Re: Tyres Again!!!

    You can change the rear tires alone. No problem at all.
    You can also choose different makes and patterns for the front and rear tires.
    No problem.
    Trouble is changing only one tyre or only changing one SIDE of tires.
    Just make sure they are "N"-marked. The non-"N"-marked aren't as rigid as the N-marked.

    Re: Tyres Again!!!

    I have never had any problems replacing front or rear only but do stick to the same tyre compound and pairs. Also, Protyre in Slough are pretty good.

    Re: Tyres Again!!!

    May I ask where you got that price? It sounds reasonable.

    Re: Tyres Again!!!

    Bracknell Tyre and Battery is where the price is from.

    11K miles....I drive like every Porsche owner should but seldom does hence the low miles!!!
